This artwork, which is entitled Administrative Processes + Events = Documents, was commissioned by the Parliamentary Archives from artist Nicola Naismith and reflects outreach work undertaken by the Parliamentary Archives during its People and Parliament: Connecting with Communities programme.

The artist worked with a community group at both the Parliamentary Archives and the Norfolk Record Office. Inspired by reactions to the unique documentary material held by both repositories she sought to explore the lives of 5 individuals named as commissioners on the 1821 Land Tax Act , the longest Act of Parliament in the Parliamentary Archives.
