Spomenik (Monument)
How do we collectively remember? How do you design for competing histories, grudges and feelings as fresh today as they were 50 years ago? And most importantly, how do you best express this spatially in a time when place is itself transitional? Spomenik explores the overlap between memory, place and narrative by making a memorial more a matter of relational geography than concrete and manicured grass. Using a network of mobile access points and transposed narratives, Spomenik plays with the notion of signal and tuning into memories and stories buried in the ground, and in the past.
