We have never been so aware that our present will be a memory in the future.
Revolutions taking place today in different fields from neuroscience to digital memory are affecting our lives in profound ways and changing the way we understand human memory and create and preserve our memories. All these changes are creating a deepening awareness of memory in our society. However, this awareness also brings a growing fear of forgetting and being forgotten.
The goal of my artistic research is two fold. On one hand, to create a reflection and awareness about our irrational fear of forgetting and our obsession with the past. And on the other, to think actively about how positive forgetting could be, in individual and collective terms, as a way to overcome our fear.
