    mnemonicon 23



    C-type print


Artist Statement:

    The most recent work in this series explores the idea of memory floating in a constructed tide of mnemonic icons. The memories dis­solve and reappear as synaptic links are formed and fade with time.

    Mnemonic notations, as those with long memories have noted, has been evolving for years. The artist has continuously reworked and modified this single computer file, fixing it from time to time for exhi­bition at the annual SIGGRAPH conference and various art exhibi­tions around the world.

Technical Information:

    Conceptually, mnemonicon is derived from a file first generated in 1990. mnemonicon 23 is one of the most recent derivatives of this work.
