Farewell, Sweet Memories

Valerian Blos

Installation

Farewell, Sweet Memories raises the question of how memories retain value in a time when photography, audio, and video reign. The tape under
the glass dome records collective memories. Once the installation looses its audience, the magnet pendulum begins to swing, thus erasing all data for eternity. Only continuous interac- tion can prevent these memories from vanishing. Valerian Blos is a visual communications student at the university of Arts in Berlin. Since 2012, he has been enrolled in professor Joachim Sauter’s Advanced new Media Class, in which he has been exploring near and distant future through interactive and speculative design approaches.
