The core activity of the Wilderness Archive is to perform area studies and develop collaborations with local stakeholders in remote (yet accessible) regions of the planet. The project outcome is a multimedia archive telling the story of such regions from multiple perspectives and exhibited in a contemporary art context. Ongoing research currently taking place in the Tusheti region of Georgia and research on prospective locations focusing on islands/archipelagos. Research areas span across multiple aspects of each ecosystem, from architecture to religious beliefs, water infrastructure to plant life.
