I understand ruins as a trace of earlier established knowledge which through time becomes cultural monuments that help us to read history. Through fragmented objects from the past we try to build a clear view of the history of human civilization. The missing parts of our knowledge of the past is filled by imagination, guessing or fiction. Museums of History play an important role in guiding the representation of history. By acknowledging history we build cultural memory that shapes our worldview. The facts that are already established construct the present so we lose the time line by building new through old. In this case if our acknowledged facts appear as a fiction it would work as an earthquake on our understanding of the present. The museums and historians navigate through time and have massive impact by using the past on our future; our perception of the future depends on how history is presented and how visitors understand it. I focus on archives or museum storage rooms. In this physical space humans have a choice when it comes to interpretation and publicity. The objects exist for certain number of people, archaeologist and those who work in the storage room. The past exists through objects and becomes alive and recognisable when exhibited, but until then it is unknown to public. I create a fictional storage room within sculptures that records reality. I leave an open question and a choice of how they should be understood, and how they will be manifested in the present.
