Museum of Random Memory

Project Description

This is an ongoing series of performative arts-based public interventions designed to spark deep reflection about the underlying complexities of everyday digital media usage.

We explore such questions as: How ­is memory-making influenced by platforms like Google, Facebook, or basic photo management software on our computers or smartphones sort and organize our images? How do companies track us and create memories on our behalf?

At Godsbanen, we retell a woman’s story, one year after she donated her memory to MoRM. On three screens, excerpts and meta-conversations are mutated and glitched algorithmically to raise questions about data degradation and the illusion of the representational archive.
