The Future of Memory

4/2 2015 — 29/3 2015

An Exhibition on the Infinity of the Present Time

Digital communication and virtual interlacing shape our world today and influence our collective memory. Remembering the past, experiencing the present and imagining the future all meld to become part of a seemingly equivalent imagery in digital space. The Future of Memory critically challenges constructions of reality and investigates the conditions under which individual and collective memory evolve.
