Amnemonic Devices

Amnemonic Devices (2009, Mixed Media)   by Karl Baumann & Elizabeth Travelslight

The project explores the contours of memory and forgetting through a layered web of materials, images, and lights.  A mixed media installation consisting of three projectors, VHS magnetic tapes, mirrors, tule, and other fabrics.  The collaboration was a formal dialogue concerning issues of memory and time, focusing on Marita Sturken’s idea of “entangled memory” and the Deleuzian concept of the “fold” in Baroque models of time.  The installation was originally exhibited at UCSC in 2009.
