MODERN TIMES - MEMORY BREAKS
Modern Times, Memory Breaks is an ongoing series started in 2011 concerned with the state of information in today's world, its distribution channels and its uses.
Constantly bombarded by visual and textual data, and always and anywhere reachable thanks to the latest communication technologies, it is becoming complicated to discern what is relevant and what is not, and to be able to see the big picture within this mass of fragmented and specialised information. Nonetheless these are the constituents of our and future generations’ memory.
All of the pieces are compositions of images and texts already available. In particular the texts are either spam emails or extracts from the same source. In the Untitled sub-series the emails are reproduced in their totality and the pieces are grouped up in categories that mime a common household management (i.e. letters, bank/money/credit cards, shopping, accidents compensations, etc.).
I Thought About That When It Was Too Late consists of L-shaped pieces where spam emails’ subjects are used as lines of poems.
