Installation: 16 October – 11 December 2014, 24/7
Showcase, UdK Berlin, Einsteinufer 43
The installation explores the value of memories in the age of photography, sound recording and video. Under a glass dome, collective memories are saved on magnetic tape. Once there are no more people listening to the stories, the pendulum above starts to swing. The magnet at the end of the pendulum eventually erases the data irretrievably – only a constant relistening can prevent its final disappearance.
