Catalogue of Questions
While examinating and discussing the topic „Water and Memory“ many questions turned up – we started collecting them in a catalogue. The catalogue of questions posed philosophical issues, and issues relating to media. In simple words, the questions investigate the nature of water and memory and test the fruitfulness of water as metaphor for memory.
The terms “water”, “human memory” and also “virtual memory – data carrier” were brought into relation with each other in differing ways.
While developing RESERVOIR the questionary helps to broaden the approach and to get a feeling for the topic. It is in some way, the backbone of our project. For the presentation of RESERVOIR the questions will be allocated to specific areas of interest and concrete subprojects, and thus form connecting links.
