Memory Politics

Kimberly Realegeno

Memory Politics is an investigation of identity through the inheritance of surviving memories and the generation effects of colonialism. Due to forced immigration and colonialism, self-identity is affected by the survival and mourning of culture, language, trauma, and family. Through digital manipulation, such as glitching and data moshing, I will expose the vulnerabilities and disruption caused by passing down knowledge. The goal of this work is to provide hope and healing for the diaspora and encourage the labour of individual and communal efforts to connect and pass on tradition, culture, and language.
