You Are Alone In The Archive…

Endlessly pouring over the Archive, and the span of human history it preserves.

You Are Alone In The Archive… is a Twitter bot created by Ewan Matthews.

@archivist_bot is my latest creation, it speaks back to the curator of history and asks the Archivist to consider the humans behind historical artifacts. The bot reminds the distant, weary Archivist of the human nature of every artifact, whether it is pottery or poetry, the fragment of an interview or an overexposed photo. It speaks to the passage of time but also the legacy of human creation.
