Staging Silence
from The July 16 on Vimeo.

by hans op de beeck


the concept of memory in public space first interested me back in the mid 90’s

while watching a pbs documentary on maya lin, the very young architect behind the highly controversial vietnam war memorial.

while this video doesn’t directly address the elements of collective memory

in the manner that memorials do, i found it to be a rather thought-provoking short

on public space, perception, and “collective memory” of the conscious and unconscious variety.

the full video is a bit longer, the artist’s site is here.
