memory (w)hole
Aug 1 - Sep 30 2008
McLeod Residence
2209 2nd Ave Seattle
Reception: Fri Aug 1 5pm

In George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, history is
constantly rewritten, with the old versions being tossed into the
"memory hole"-- an incinerator. memory (w)hole is a play on words
that implies we inhabit a space between total recall and utter amnesia.
This exhibit presents the largest compilation of Robert Zverina Short Films to date, with more than 24 hours of non-repeating
microdocumentaries cycling chronologically in a comfortable cinema setting. In an adjacent gallery, 572 Picture of the Day web
page printouts line the walls from floor to ceiling to form an "exploded book," a grand gesture in the futile struggle against forgetting.
