Collective Memory

One of the things I’ve always liked about blogging is that the blog also functions as my virtual scapbook and archive. Benjamin flagged an interesting project to capture the collective memory of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Gates project in Central Park.

Using Flickr’s unique photo sharing platform, the Institute for the Future of the Book will gather pictures of the Gates from anyone and everyone who wants to contribute. The aim is to harness the creativity and insight of thousands to build a kind of collective memory machine – one that is designed not just for the moment, but as a lasting and definitive document of the Gates and our experience of them.

    Hi Andy, Did you follow the Somerville Gates in the press? Tons of coverage locally, but here’s one of the articles:

    Sadly, Hargo’s full installation is no longer on his site.
