“In The Stack, photographs representing each category of the museum’s archive are printed, the total equal to the number of photographs in the entire archive. Moving the collection out of horizontal storage cabinets and into a vertical stack makes the entire archive visible as a totality, but it is only its edges and captions that reveal information about the images contained therein.” - Jayne Wilkinson, Curator
