Author Hari Kunzru’s dystopian Memory Palace
« on: September 23, 2013, 03:40:45 AM »

Author Hari Kunzru’s dystopian Memory Palace is brought to life at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London

It’s London, some indeterminate time in the future. Capitalism has broken down, memory has disintegrated, words have lost their meaning and the internet is a relic of the past. The city is run by the Lords Of The Thing, the towering Red Man metal sculpture in the east has become a new site of worship, books are banned and few people remember the old days. ‘We call ourselves Memorialists,’ says one man who does, at least partially. ‘We are the ones in this ruined place who can recite the names of the dead.’

At the V&A, 16th June – 20th October, this dystopic view of the capital, spawned by the imagination of author Hari Kunzru, is on display in an eerie, three-dimensional life.

Nice post Loretta - I'm sure in all the ages of war mankind has been through and the burning of books and the loss of knowledge - this is how it felt for the survivors

A 10,000 year clock!  We can add that to our holiday destination.:)

Carved into the mountain that houses the clock, are five room-sized anniversary chambers: 1 year, 10 year, 100 year, 1,000 year, and 10,000 year anniversaries. The one year anniversary chamber is a special orrery. In addition to the planets and the Earth's moon, it includes the interplanetary probes launched during the 20th century. The Clock will activate and run the orrery once a year on a pre-determined date at solar noon. We aren't planning to build the animations for the 100, 1,000, and 10,000 year anniversary chambers, but will instead leave those to future generations. We are providing a mechanical interface into those chambers that provides those future builders with power and the correct Clock triggering events. We do intend to build the animation for the 10 year anniversary chamber, but haven't decided what it will be yet. If you have an interesting idea for the 10 year anniversary chamber, please feel free to email it to 10-year-chamber@10000yearclock.net, and they'll add it to the mix of ideas. http://www.10000yearclock.net/learnmore.html
