Selective memory Theatre – An Exploration of Implied Space.

Created by Matthias ‘moka’ Dörfelt, Selective Memory Theatre is a machine-like perception and memory installation which receives the newest images from flickr that get distorted, mixed and blended to pursue a notion of sensory noise and portray memory and perception. Simultaneously these images are mapped as “similar memories” to the secondary projection representing short- and long-term memory layer and their mutual relationships. – Source :  Filip Visnjic CREATIVE APPLICATIONS NETWORK

A new perception in focus on the right and the corresponding memory on the left.

Selective Memory Theatre is a machine-like perception and memory installation – the intent is to emulate human memory, creating an interaction of online information and sensory input that then teaches the non-forgetting digital memory to forget. It thereby replicates how the the individual mind selects, prioritizes and integrates experience into memory . It is the opinion of Matthias ‘moka’ Dörfelt that this process eventually reduces experience & memory to an oblivion.

As a piece of contemporary Mass Media  Art, it demonstrates how new Mass media technology  is a  Implied Space waiting to be creatively explored, generating new media content in new forms.  It also demonstrates the mass media principle that Mew Mass Media absorbs/consumes the content and codes & conventions of previous forms of Mass Media, re-constituting them as new constructed realities. More information and  other work  my the artist can be found at the links in the post ( images are also linked to their source document).  The following video  documents  the installation. Vimeo videos are of high quality and may take a bit of time to load. Make sure to watch in HD wide screen.
