The Glance

RAW an audio/photographic tool for conveying minimally-mediated impressions of everyday life by JoŽlle Bitton, Stefan Agamanolis, Matthew Karau, Human Connectedness - MLE

Records and accounts of everyday life in our pasts and presents are often mediated by numerous third parties (researchers, producers, editors, and so on). We feel this mediation degrades the full sense of awareness and appreciation we could achieve of other peoples and places. The goal of the RAW project is to develop a new kind of recording tool, together with a method for processing and presenting the material captured with the tool, that enables a more direct, minimally-mediated relationship between its user and the later audience, possibly in a far away place or time.

I like this project - it takes a very different position on memory and mediation than I would, and it reminds me of glances and gazes.
