Supervitesse et wikimémoire   Jean Cristofol, Alexandre Guay, Suzanne Leblanc, Julien Maire, Fabrice Montal, François Parra (2008)

In 2008 speed and memory were major issues for artistic thought. They were everywhere, though perhaps most manifestly in media arts with its constant use of new technology.

In 2008 speed and memory were major issues for artistic thought. They were everywhere, though perhaps most manifestly in media arts with its constant use of new technology. For Avatar, as an audio and electronic arts production and distribution centre, they were the key issues of the day. To explore them and develop the understanding demanded by its work in this rapidly evolving field, Avatar organized in 2008 the symposium Supervitesse et wikimémoire to consider the acceleration of consciousness and the linkage of fragmented memory into networks. It also published the symposium proceedings.   

Avatar’s Supervitesse et wikimémoire was coproduced with Les Productions Recto-Verso as part of Mois Multi 9. The event took place on February 14 and 15, 2008, Complexe Méduse’s Salle Multi. The proceedings came out later in 2008.
