Workshop with David Desrimais: Archiving in Style, Part 1
16 MAR 2018
The workshop will be held in English.
Outside the OCC
The workshop is open to all
A 3-hour workshop like a round-trip from digital to analog feelings, and back. Meet the most genuine qualities of the internet, as we love it.
The workshop means to extend the most genuine qualities of the internet, as we love it, to some physical incarnation. If I need to summon this online feeling and there is no electricity, what can I do? What are the textures, the smells, the weight we could associate to digital feelings? Here the feeling serves as an element of preservation, and the physicality of things as a way to think perennial in digital.
Based on each participant’s digital practice and knowledge and crossed with David Desrimais’ (Jean Boîte Éditions) know-how, this workshop is a round-trip from digital to analog feelings, and back.
