ROOPE RAINISTO | RECOLLECTION MACHINE
Roope Rainisto's series RECOLLECTION MACHINE examines human memory and our relationship with technology: our insatiable hunger to create, capture, and consume memories, no matter whether these memories are real or imagined. The transmitted signals compress the richness of experiences into lossy compressed copies, making them more palatable and consumable.
The cold terminals, the myriad of displays, gather our attention, seemingly plain, neutral, and unadorned. From these devices, moments can be recalled endlessly over until they cease to create emotions in us. The past overcomes the present. We obsess about the past, ignore living in the present, creating memories about watching memories.
