REMEMBER Me by Professor Helen Newall is a multimedia art installation designed for an audience of one to explore the fragmentation of memory and identity in the context of the First World War.
Combining digital animation, physical memorabilia and soundtrack, Remember Me provides a powerful visual and sensory experience which brings the soldiers depicted in salvaged original photographs back to our attention in the present.
The installation asks how we remember those without identity or direct memories, and how we can commemorate them.
The installation can be viewed in individual 20-minute sessions and runs on Wednesday and Thursday, June 15-16 at the Arts Centre as part of Edge Hill University’s Festival of Ideas.
