Memory XII

Fond memory brings the light of other days around me. 

Thomas Moore

Nel futuro, e in parte già presente, comprenderemo l’enorme perdita dovuta all’impossibilità di leggere i dati conservati nelle memorie elettroniche, digitali e analogiche, che abbiamo usato per anni. Floppy disk, nastri magnetici, vhs, compact disc, dvd, pen drive: memorie che, oltre a soffrire l’obsolescenza propria e dei supporti necessari a leggerli, conserviamo con enorme pressappochismo.
Cosa rimarrà di queste memorie che compongono la memoria di vita di più generazioni?
Che relazione esiste tra queste memorie e la memoria umana, sia biologicamente come rete di impulsi elettrici che socialmente come rete di relazioni?


In the future, and in part already present, We understand the enormous loss due to inability to read data stored in electronic memories, digital and analog, we used to years. Floppy disk, magnetic tapes, VHS, compact disc, dvd, pen drive: memories that, in addition to suffer the own obsolescence and supports necessary to read them, We preserve with great carelessness.
What will remain of these memories that make up the lives of several generations of memory?
What is the relationship between these memories and human memory, both biologically as a network of electrical impulses that socially as a network of relationships?

Investigating the relationship between technology and human memory, the light installation questions about the enormous loss due to the inability to read data stored in electronic memories, digital and analog, we used for years.

By a stochastic algorithm, the light interaction represents the ramification of human memory, from born to elderly – in which every cycle is different.
