Focusing on digital archives, we will explore the impact of artificial intelligence on practices of meaning-making and memory formation.
The seminar aims to explore the impact of digital archives on our notion of archives.
Whereas traditional archives can be understood as spaces of permanent ordering objects and of preservation for remembrance, digital archives disrupt institutionalized archival systems and provide a speedy and wider information network which allows users greater ease to share, reuse, remix and even modify the content. In this sense, unlike traditional ’art of memory’ whose mnemotechnical storage had always linked memory to space, digital archives destabilize the fixed link between memory and space. If coupling place and memory can be seen as a means to order the interpretation of things, then we need to consider different practices of meaning-making and the formation processes of memory. The seminar, therefore, focuses on the relationship between space, time and memory. We consider how digital spaces change forms of storage and timescale, and impact on the organization and interpretation of memories and narratives.
