het Uiteenvallen van de Volharding der Herinnering door de Haven van Rotterdam in samenwerking met Apple Kaarten/ the Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory by the Port of Rotterdam in cooperation with Apple Maps
The Port of Rotterdam. Immense. Structured. Organized. A no-nonsense area.
Mapped by Apple Maps. For the purpose of navigation or positioning. An emotionless, binary registration of reality in our time.
But take a closer look, and there is more to be seen. Structures fall apart, chaos takes over. Parts of vessels vanish. Memories emerge. Time becomes visible.
To me, it is a metaphor for how memory works. We perceive something, it is stored in our mind, transformed into a memory. A memory that fades, that may be distorted and even disappear in the course of time.
