Mixed Media


Memory is the most important anchor of human existence. In contemporary art, architecture and philosophy, futuristic vistas are being sketched of a society in a constant state of impermanen­ce, with a nomadic population which is flexible in its lifestyle and environment, a population which has been freed of compulsory memory. In musical developments, on the other hand, sam­ples transport bits of a collective sonic memory to the present. Soundscapes can be seen as a cartography of memory. With the influence of new media, is there a new kind of interaction being created between human-memory, architecture and environment?
RE:collections is an associative program that takes place between memory and forgetting.
