The Future of Writing Everything, 2011
collaboration with Sascha Pohflepp

The future of writing is the future of writing down everything. We will be the last generation whose life will not have been on record. Personal technology has been tracking our every move for some time already and selective memory is a biological concept from which databases do not suffer. The future of writing will be our auto-autobiographies being created by machinic ghost-writers. How aware will we be of being the protagonist of a continuous narrative? One through which the past could be re-enacted, the meaning of the present influenced, and the future predicted.


Study 1 - We may want to attempt to use our perfect memory in the order to go back in time


Study 2 - We may want to be remembered where we are not


Study 3 - We may want the machines to read our future
