Dadum : The Self in Data through Somatic Immersive Memory

- et al.
Dadum investigates new ways of recreating memories using digital tools. Exploring
re-creations of those lost, object reminiscences, and how these structures translate into digital becomings. The theories here look toward conversations on data, particularly as we grow ever-tethered to our digital self. Exploring how the next-generation interface with this digital self is becoming immersive. The ideas and research written focus on ways data is handled and the role immersion will play in our growing social digital self with expanded notions of somatic integration. I explore this relationship through the development of my artwork which memorializes my memory of my deceased father through digital reconstruction and transcription of artifacts he left behind.
