DIGITAL TRAUMA

SYNOPSIS:

If we can access our past at any given moment, to what extent can we get rid of it and look ahead? What consequences do the access to a digital memory (including access to the words, images and sounds of the horrors of the past) have for post-conflict societies? Can a digital memory become a powerful tool to ignite more profound ethnic hate, violence and war?.

I´m interested in how the ubiquity and pervasive nature of digital technology is reshaping our view of our past, and therefore our identity. I wonder what are the effects of the shift from analog to digital on the construction of cultural memory and what are the implications of those effects?.

Method: All the images and sounds are the combination of the result from typing the words in Google search box.

I Recommend to watch this video in full screen mode with the volume very high and headphones to get the inmersive atmosphere. Don´t forget HD button on.
