Monument Lab and the Center for Public Art and Space present “Augmenting Memory: Justice and Monuments in New Media,” a virtual panel that addresses pressing questions around the role of new media in monument-making and memorialization in public space.
Join expert panelists Glenn Cantave (Movers and Shakers), Cheyenne Concepcion (New Monuments Task Force), and Marisa Williamson (Sweet Chariot) as they share their own projects and experiences of activating public spaces and building coalitions through new media technologies. The panel will discuss how digital tools can serve broader publics, create new kinds of memorials, and challenge our inherited monument landscapes. Other topics of conversation include questions around accessibility, resources, and process with regard to working with digital and virtual technologies. The conversation will be moderated by Patricia Eunji Kim, Monument Lab’s Associate Director of Public Programs. Augmenting Memory is part of a suite of public programs that mark the launch of Monument Lab’s OverTime, a free downloadable augmented reality app that offers self-guided tours of a public space through an imagined outdoor art and history museum.
This event and the OverTime app are both supported by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
