The memories residing in all of us will be somewhat biased due to our different trajectories in life. Memories also tend to be confabulated into a unique narrative of its own. Participating artists of the exhibition including GayBird will share their experiences in integrating data analysis and arts technology, extracting memories from reality and illusion to create works recognised and understood by the public.
