Abstract

In our approach, immediations of memory spell out the creative potential in the archival pieces that move beyond the determinate power of a referential past. Thus, immediation is neither a representational practice attempting to establish a more immediate experience of reality (i.e. “immediacy,” see Bolter & Grusin 1999) nor a procedure to undo the bounds of archival images in order to approach reality “unmediated.” In our understanding of the term, immediations of memory unlock representational stratifications—such as those construed by ideologies, perceptual habits or everyday regulations— with the purpose of reactivating the potentials of a past that has been laden with explanations and interpretations. Bypassing the call for accurate recollections, immediations of memory foreground what is still emergent in past moments that we can no longer access or come to know as such.
