Archaeology is when we work with what remains

Archaeology is a way of thinking and engaging with things that can offer unique insights into how change and innovation work, into the design of things, into where we have come from and where we might go.

Archaeology is about encounter, the past-in-the-present, as it relates to our imagined futures. Archaeology is based upon the past’s resistance to decay, its presence, and implying a care for the future.
