theme: Memories of the Future
Open Set Seoul Edition investigated the changing concepts of memory as part of our personal and collective identities, and how they are projected on images of the future. At the same time the event aimed to explore how this perception of the future alters our identities, our relations here and now. How these two concepts — memory and relations — are interconnected and how design research and practice can help to think differently about their future scenario?
The theme addressed first of all to the contemporary understanding of memory by itself — including thinking about information which presents our global memory, its contemporary digitalization and also its editing and mediation, — as well as the concept of relations between people, institutions, systems and etc., which were the prism for the discussion about past, present and future.
