Collecting Fragments of Time is a series of recordings involving instruments that pull live radio frequencies from the air. These recordings are being compiled to create an archive of fragmented time. The Archive of Fragmented Time will exist as a physical drive containing images and video files in addition to existing in various forms on the internet. Contributions to the archive can be submitted via email through file sharing platforms, social media tagging, or using the hashtag #collectingfragmentsoftime 


Once compiled, the archive along with the The Trans-Harmonium - a DIY clock radio synth - will be donated to an organization or institution interested in keeping the project alive by loaning out the instrument to spaces in various cities, expanding the archive.
