Introducing Museum of Random Memory (MoRM) at CounterPlay 2017

The Museum of Random Memory is dedicated to the overlooked, the unloved, and the forgotten. During CounterPlay ‘17 the participatory performance and exhibition invited participants to think about the process of making memories, to play around with the idea that remembering and forgetting are not always distinct. We asked participants to contribute something they’d like to forget and walked them through a process of dis-remembering, de-archiving, and dis-preserving. It’s was a playful process, but also helped both us and them think critically about how individual and cultural memories are built, archived, stored, displayed in a digital world.
