Memorius is 5
We will remember it ... as a small spherical robot-camera, perched on a tripod made up of four floors of a building in north-western Bombay, on the old border between the British and Portuguese empires.
A generic 21c security camera with a non-generic purpose: to "film", rather than to "wait and watch". This object - we called it Memorius after the character in a Borges story that first appeared in a Buenos Aires newspaper in 1942 (who not only remembered everything, but also always knew the time) - is 5 years old today. In another 5, it will be 10. The Thing is 22, CAMP is 15...
The stream from Memorius is always at "local time", intercut by images from its young memory: The result is a kind of context-machine in which one image provides a context for another, by thickening it in time.
Viewable at the Panke Gallery, from 3 pm to 7pm Wednesday to Saturday until December 1, 2022.
