Present Memory and LIveness in Delivery and Reception of Video Documentation during Performance Art Events

This project is based on an hypothesis that notions of liveness and presence can be questioned by allowing manipulation of documentation in the live event to be the performance's opening stage rather than its point of closure thus generating a form of present memory. The practical work will partially draw on Derrida's notion of 'supplement' and theoretical collaboration with Prof. Thomas Suddendorf (Cognitive Psychology).
