Technologies of Memory and Affect

‘Technologies of Memory and Affect’ is an interdisciplinary two day conference, a visual methodologies workshop, and an exhibition to be held in Adelaide immediately prior to the Adelaide Fringe Festival from February 16-17 2017

Keynotes: Professor Deb Verhoeven and Dr Romaine Moreton and the participation of the ‘Unbound Collective’

This suite of events aims to bring together creative practice and research with memory and affect as they emerge and become apparent in specifically technological spaces. We interpret our core concepts broadly around theoretical lines of longevity and impermanence; tangibility and ephemerality; sensation, intimacy and bodily engagement; subjective narrative and digital data.
The workshop and exhibition aspects aim to make visible a range of invisible technologies and our entanglement with them, through embodiment, affect, materiality and digital interfaces. Technologies – from the printing press to the camera to the internet – create objects that leave traces. We will illuminate some of those traces by drawing them forth into the visual and aural realm as an exploration of the nexus between research, practice and communication.
