Connected memories

Mencia, Maria (2009) Connected memories. (interactive digital art/narrative).


This piece is an exploration of oral histories and the use of technology as a participatory and inviting medium to perform and share stories. It is an interactive piece, which consists of a series of extracts from interviews of refugees living in London and the connection between them. To represent the fractured realities and the formations of connected memories, the viewers need to interact with the piece by clicking on the color-activated common keywords. As with the oral storytelling tradition, in this work, the share of experiences happens at that moment in time. There is no recording facility; the text is in constant flux of becoming.
