There were two main catalysts for the initiation of Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen’s project, The Making of an Archive. One was the photo albums of the artist’s father, an amateur photographer who took countless photographs of his daily life when he first immigrated to Canada in the 70’s. The second was the research Nguyen did for 1967: A People Kind of Place, her sci-fi documentary created out of archival material the artist found of Canada’s centennial which celebrated the implementation of the country’s point-based immigration system.
