The Archive of Educated Hearts by Casey Jay Andrews
Scrawled diary entries, answer-phone messages blinking on an old landline, a shoebox of postcards and cassette tapes winding stories across years and continents.

The Archive is an intimate storytelling installation containing the remarkable moments that make up a lifetime. The audience are surrounded by relics and keepsakes that allow a glimpse into stories of kindness and courage; fragments of absolute joy and incomprehensible heartbreak. The Archive is crafted from true stories of families facing breast cancer.
