A platform for the digital end of the RIFF/T spectrum, Tyneside Cinema’s Pixel Palace and basic.fm with The Hang Gang and BALTIC 39, co-host an workshop and discussion examining digital memory and codification.

Fabienne Hess, Trash Recovery Performance

Fabienne Hess will discuss her work which engages with found digital images, recycled from the bins of private and public computers. Picking through society’s digital trash, dumped, deleted, and forgotten images are retrieved through data recovery software, in a seemingly endless cycle of metamorphosis. Born in Switzerland, Hess graduated from the Royal College of Art (London) in 2012 and now works in London.

This is an exploration into the digital trash of our technocratic society. Since information nowadays is predominantly written as binary codes, the question of the nature of debris needs to be re-examined.

Participants are invited to bring their USB flash drives, SD cards or any other small data storage on which a trash recovery application will be performed. With images found via this process of memory recovery, a short flickering image archive will be assembled and presented at the closing of RIFT at BALTIC 39 on Sunday evening. A selection of the recovery results will be uploaded onto [i’ll be your mirror]. http://fabiennehess.com/

Aaron Guy, Psychological Economy

Aaron Guy will present a new work in progress which explores ideas concerning the codification of images, drawing parallels in the relationship between social coding and digital coding. Exploring how, through imagery, political history is engrained in our collective memory, Guy’s project reflects on how we alter, recontextualise and transmit those memories to programme subsequent generations. The results of the project so far will be broadcast live on basic.fm.
