Mnemonic River Axial Rain


Animated video, colour, sound, 28 sec, 2021

Mnemonic River Axial Rain’ (2021) is a visual exploration of memory in the hypermedia era and the relationship of connective mnemonic practices within and beyond state-established collective boundaries. The animated video is an allusion to the possibilities that exist within hyper-technological modes to debunk dominant archives and use their debris to reconsider historic and contemporary occurrences. Woven into the fabric of this work are reflections on the synergies between hypermedia and rivers. Both offer innumerable opportunities to re-constitute and re-present events thereby impacting mnemonic and chronological syntheses.
