Back Events Near Me » Memory, Circulation and the Digital Archive @ Hoa Sen University

This lecture will discuss how more images, sounds, and videos are being produced in contemporary Asia than ever in the past. People with smart phones and low cost gadgets take millions of images, sounds and videos and share them with friends on networks. Our memories seem expanded exponentially, as we are now aided by digital storage on our media devices. New, digitally enabled archives of the past have burst into prominence, giving them a new life, and opening access to many.

What are the consequences of enhancing our memories with artificial, digital aids? Is memory more enhanced or fragile, a fading glow as we rush to capture everything that exists with digital cameras?

*Entrance is free. English – Vietnamese translation will be provided.
