A project about retirement, cataloguing and value.     Residing in a basement is a secret archive managed by a dedicated group of volunteer retirees.     The volunteers' cataloguing methods and personal belongings roused a curiosity around what constitutes worth and relevance to society, both in terms of these 'retired' and obsolete objects and the men and women who archive them.
