ONE YEAR LIFE STRATA

“One Year Life Strata proposes a visual metaphor of forgetting by transforming the digital images into what is likely the ultimate memory trace that will remain from us: The geological record. The project, in a sort of digital geology, mines the data from the strata and invites to investigate one year of María Molina Peiro´s life through an AI vision which doesn’t care about the personal memories include on those photos but in the collection of patterns and numbers they contain.

In a society obsessed with recollection, data and monitoring One Year Life Strata addresses the disturbing territory of forgetting. Today that we have the tools to remember and archive almost everything, forgetting has become a term very close to death raising very similar fears. One Year Life Strata wants to overcome this fear and embrace forgetting in a game of time scales, where the speed of Digital Time is buried into a time difficult for us to grasp, the slow Deep Time.”

In María Molina Peiró´s work the relation between human, technology and nature is key. Her work explores, among other things, the fluctuating nature of time and the convergences between different time scales and memory systems (from Geology to Digital Memory). Appropriating processes and tools of metafiction and postproduction some of her works explore the blurry and subjective line that separates actual than virtual. She is particularly interested  in how the ubiquity and pervasive nature of Digital Technology is reshaping the view of our past and therefore our future.
