How much personal memories is trapped in technological obsolescence, buried in a new generation of devices and formats? What happend to that birthday VHS? That song we recorded with our brothers in an audio tape? The slides of the excursion? The Super 8 film of that snowy day?
The switch from analog to digital medium has not always be an solution for preserving data. The lack of comunication between codecs and technologies prevent the opportunity to retrieve emotions, light impressions, experiences, thoughts, music and voices we keep in boxes with no key.
Playing with José Luis Brea's metaphor, we want to open audivisual codes trapped in ROM memories and put them in circulation with living remixes, with RAM memories.
General goal: To open memories. Recapture documents. Remix of personal and public audiovisual files. Audiovisual hackactivism.
