MoRM and Future Memories: Collaboratively investigating a contrapuntal museum as a participatory research approach

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapter

As part of a research project entitled ‘Creating Future
Memories’ at Aarhus University a group of
individuals blurring the boundaries between art,
academics, and activism got together and
participated in Counterplay 2016 at DOK1. Without
any prior knowledge of the group-composition or
possible aims for the experimental workshop we
lunged into a process of devising both an interactive
exhibition and an installation which explored the ‘big
data’ citizens regularly produce in their everyday lives and how this data might be archived, packaged, and recycled - or even forgotten, primarily within social media. We wanted to explore what our daily routines connected to social media and sorting our data meant for the way we shape our memories, and therefore the traces of future memories.
In this chapter we follow the trajectory of the exhibition entitled ‘MoRM’ (Museum of Random Memories).
