MayDay Rooms is in formation, and consists of a series of interconnecting spaces and enquiries where the latencies of the past and the future can meet in dynamic exchange, where individual and collaborative archiving, singular cataloguing, indexing and distribution can bring out of the shadows those undeservedly ‘homeless’ histories. MayDay Rooms provide designated space for sifting and conserving, research, education, production, dreaming, scheming, reading, cooking, socialising.

In Exchange: 10th Floor. Skype exchange between BA students, staff and others working with the Central Saint Martin’s archive, in London and students/staff from the UdK, Universität der Künste, Berlin. Lethaby Gallery, February 2011.
