Jason E Bowman
Worthing Library at 2pm on the 27th
Jason E. Bowman's work for Navigating History explores the notion
of the archive and the library and the act of reading. Local studies collections
and archives represent many of the stories and biographies of a community,
the collections allow people to connect with the many histories of an
area and to understand the present.
Invisible among the items in the libraries' are the
stories of all the readers who have been there before. Their tracks lie
in fingerprints and smudges on the pages they have touched, which is evidence
of their time spent reading, exploring, examining and investigating and
being lost amidst narratives.
Jason E Bowman's project is about revealing the histories of what library
and archive means to generations of people through the traces of past
users. Using the historical 'human newspaper' the town crier Bowman will
redistribute the hidden stories to the public of Worthing on Saturday
November 27. To find out if you're story has been included or one that
you have yet to discover then please come to Worthing Library at 2pm on
