Mnemonic 1.0 was an investigation into the nature of memory, situated as both an ongoing installation, and a guided tour of the same installation. I occupied and performed both the position of artist and of curator/docent; for approximately half the piece, I gave the audience a tour and history lesson about the installation, and for the other half, I engaged with and performed within the installation as the creator.

Mnemonic 1.0 was divided into 6 parts, each of which corresponded to a principle of memory outlined in the Ars Memorativa. The piece was developed for the Bushwick Starr’s Bushwack Festival in 2010.
