Sammanfattning

This article discusses the digital reconstruction of the home and garden of the famous Swedish painter Ivar Arosenius (1878-1909). The small piece of land in Älvängen finds itself at the centre of a new archiving process, as much of the material now being digitized in the Arosenius Project was produced there during the artist's last few years. In describing the reconstruction process, the act of digitally reconstructing a site and a built environment is framed as an iterative research method of enquiry and translation between different media – an act that allows heterogeneous materials to be simultaneously collected, studied, and processed. As such, the reconstruction is posed as not only a visual manifestation of the physical and digital archive documentation, bur also a process of knowledge acquisition and evaluation. The reconstruction allows the documents of the archive to be framed not only as archive documents, but as artefacts reflecting – and resituating – the relationship that ties Arosenius' art to his surroundings. The reconstruction tries both to bring some aspects of the archive back to life and to be an analytical model chat generates and stores intangible information. As such, it is both a reflection of our visual and textual archive and a carri er of personal stories and memories.
