An interactive installation that has a performative aspect where the artist interacts with the audience to collect their memories and continuously build the installation. The Ministry of Mnemosyne interrogates the intrinsic value of a memory with no extrinsic qualities. Is memory valuable enough to wade through the bureaucratic morass of paperwork and personnel to record a memory and archive it in the Ministry of Mnemosyne? This project borrows from the practices of International bureaucracies, and military practices. The project preserves memories in a Codex Memoria, and mnemonic objects within the Archive of Memories. The memories that are imprinted on objects allow the memory imprinter to free themselves of the memory, or to have a backup of the memory in the event of memory loss.
This project is scalable and transportable to be able to adapt to multiple memory collection workshops, installations, and exhibitions, while being designed to encourage research opportunities across several modes of engagement with the public.
The Mnemonic Object Packet contains many layers of authentication, certification, security and encryption, with the capability to upgrade security levels depending on the sensitivity and importance of the memory. Each packet is bound in either legal tape or twine depending on the level of importance the memory has been assigned.
