Mozilla HubsRecollecting Futures
27. März um 18:00 – 19:00
PYLON and SYNTHESIS Gallery present RECOLLECTING FUTURES, a digital exhibition of works by Carla Gannis, Mohsen Hazrati and Christopher Meerdo.
The multi dimensional online exhibition will launch 27th March in the synthesis gallery’s Mozilla Hubs virtual space.
The archive is an immersive environment: the sum of documentary material circulating between individual interactions, in culture, in the media; creating structures of a shared consciousness and ‘collective memory.’ Methods of archiving have changed dramatically alongside accelerations of information distribution and increased storage possibilities. Collective assertions of equity have exposed problematic implicit power dynamics of archival methods, highlighting who has designated what we collectively remember.
Inhabiting an interactive multidimensional space, RECOLLECTING FUTURES presents three contemporary artistic perspectives on how we store, evaluate and share information and memories, and how archives will be structured in our future of mixed realities.
Is every random bit and piece of digitized information, shared online libraries, social media platforms and our multimedia-pervaded life automatically contributing to a global internet archive, creating a massive indiscernible/latent collective memory? How will the future derive meaning and memory from this plethora? Considering the consequences of endlessly feeding the algorithm with personal, factual, and sometimes false information, RECOLLECTING FUTURES interrogates the methods and structures of how we archive and access information.
The artistic positions of the exhibition implicate questions of what and why something is preserved. Considering the agency of every participant – object or subject – within the dynamic webs of information and data exchange, the artists collectively envision new strategies for memory processing and future forms of repositories.
Every piece of information is a piece of a bigger picture – a big infinite puzzle that remains unfinished, or rather one that is constantly becoming a future to be re-collected.
