The Memory Matrix project explores possibilities of future heritage creation and the employment of new fabrication techniques and transcultural collaborations.
The piece deploys over 20,000 small fluorescent Plexiglas elements, or “pixels,” that are laser cut and incised with outlines of vanished and threatened global heritage sites. These outlines are designed in participatory transcultural workshops and produced using digital fabrication techniques.
The project aims to enhance our understanding of common global cultural heritage through contemporary art, created through collaborations between students, artists, and innovators across contested cultural territories.
