Data Recovery

Data Recovery

This video was recorded at SCCA - Center for Contemporary Arts, Ljubljana. Data recovery is a procedure of partial recovery of lost data from the memory without the context which, before the loss occurred, gave the positive informational, social, or other meaning. By emulating this process we want to bring back the fragments of events, actions or situations which disappeared in our general memory loss. Let us quote Rancière's motto: „We choose the present instead of historicization, mareriality of the process instead interpretation." In doing that we hold to three principles: 1) Configuration instead of confabulation; 2) The present instead of historicization and 3) Diachronical principle instead of chronology.
