DNA is a spatial structure . The idea of DNA is taken here in two ways , firstly as an acronym of "Archives of the North" and the other as an analogy on the definition of "cells" which contain all the information necessary for the development and operation of an organization one of whose essential function is the transmission of information from generation to generation.

From a collection of photographs of the new building of the Archives and documentary collections, it is to suggest a stroll , a walk, discovering new food stores that highlight various corpus selected and developed by the artists archive including the organistion of the new building , views on Archives today , in twenty sections (photographic archives , documents, archival objects ) …

It is from this reference to the helical shape of the DNA movements and exchange cross between content and containers settle freely to structure the work and guide the reader inside the traces stored in the building.
