Forget, Remember, Become

On November 20th 2012 the European Commission regulation on data protection published the report The Right to be Forgotten – between expectations and practice (EC law, 2012). In the initial opening of this report the language around ‘right to erasure’ or ‘right to oblivion’ has been ambiguous and at points seemed intently abstruse.

This research is a 
studio focused material investigation where the end product is an artefact – where the thinking is, so to speak, embodied in the artefact, the goal is not primarily communicable knowledge in the sense of verbal communication, but in the sense of visual or iconic communication. The intent is to establish a visual link between the ‘erased’ and the ‘perminant’ and how that shapes what the form becomes.
