description
dieburgs erinnerungskarte lies at the heart of dieburg; packed with stories from the dieburgers, it uncovers the secrets behind old photographs. the project focuses on the personal memories of dieburg’s inhabitants about significant places and events during their lifetimes. the resulting social sculpture provides an alternative narrative to historical literature, documented in film, sound and virtual reality that captures the spirit of dieburgs memory in a 360° experience. this "digital archive" contra-poses old pictures of the town with today’s scenery as well as sound recordings from various places and people, to enhance a "throwback" effect on participants. altogether, the visual scenery, the soundscape of the community of dieburg, and the impressionistic feedback from them composes a social sculpture that we call "memory map".
