The Future of Memory

None
The Future of Memory exams the fact that language online has become the medium in which expression and activism arise in the US, in China, and globally. In this workshop, we'll use Hanzimaker, a tool in the Algorithmic Censorship Resistance Toolkit, we built for The Future of Memory, to experiment with creating new words, phrases and vocabularies to document the past and think through the future. These new hybrid characters, a mash of multiple languages, just as diasporic as their creators will escape classification and recognition by automated systems. We see these characters as a form of visual poetry. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.” What words will we be left with to describe the past? What words will build our future? What is the new vocabulary we need for different kinds of revolution?
