The flying archive consists of 31 volumes, with attributions such as COSMOS, No Index, Collective ideas, Curiosity, Collaboration, Liquidity, fig., Housing, Off_Activities, Global Modernities, POST FUTURE(S), UNREALIZED IDEAS, ref., temporality, Other Languages, Identity, Post-Internet, Questionnaires, etc. The concepts attributed to the volumes draw attention to the extensive Digital Archive created during the long-term collaboration period of two and a half years, by sharing records, texts, books, screenshots, images, notes, ideas, mind maps etc. between all members of on/off collaboration.

In the exhibition they were assembled and stacked alongside the bare covers for the first time in printed form and could be taken away for nothing more than curiosity, thus scattering, carrying on the archive amongst those interested in a particular file, stretching our dialogues further across known and unknown living entities.
