NOTHING WAS TOUCHED, JUST RECORDED

In a non-intrusive survey, nothing is touched, just recorded. An accurate survey of the earthworks and other features can enable them to be interpreted without the need for excavation. The Roman artefacts which were found in Wilten district are now presented in the archeology department of the Innsbruck city museum. The photographic documentation stood all the time as a witness beyond the archeology discoveries but was never presented as an artwork rather as a pure tool of documentation. The artefacts stand nowadays in the museum by themselves without any visual imagery. By photographing the locations where the Roman artefacts were found, generates new landmarks which in turn establish a connection between these two elements who were separated one from each other. Meanwhile the artefacts are getting all the attention in a controlled medium, in the same locations new contemporary objects replace the Roman artefacts by using the self-archiving method in the natural environment.
