FADING MEMORIES
2015 - ongoing, interactive web project
Fading Memories is a self-destructive image archive that’s content refers to historical incidents and social changes that have fallen into oblivion by the general public. It deals with memories of a brighter future that never came true and publishes snapshots of our history that have a social or political relevance still today.
With every visit on the website exactly one pixel of the current image gets deleted. The image vanishes and dissolves through the collective consciousness of its observers. Single moments of social achievements, political claims and forgotten memories are recollected for a short period of time before they dissolve into thin air and disperse again into oblivion.
