How confident can you be about your memories? A woman’s effort to remember… “Digital Recollection” is a story inspired from those people that during the pandemic period, got in contact with their inner self, discover their wounds, process their thoughts and found the courage to come forward and report past child and sexual abuse. It is a snapshot of such a story, which guides us to the moment when our hero, after a visit to the place where she grew up, begins to recall fragments of repressed childhood memories. Recollection is by nature subjective and defective. Ιn the digital world, unlike physical world, there can be no analogy of recollection. The information chosen to be stored in a digital medium is defined, structured, and unchangeable over time. By utilizing several glitching techniques we manage to add subjectivity to the medium, creating a digital analogy of the recollection.
