Artsit Salon: How Digital Memory is Shaping Our Future

Artsit Salon: How Digital Memory is Shaping Our Future  

Presented by Providence Athenaeum at Providence Athenaeum

March 24, 2017

In a time of abundance of information dueling with the scarcity of human attention, Our stories, ideas, and innovations – in a word, our “culture” – can be recorded and passed on to future generations. Author Abby Smith Rumsey discusses her new book When We Are No More, exploring human memory from pre-history to the present to shed light on the grand challenge facing our world. Serving as a call to consciousness, When We Are No More explains why data storage is not memory; why forgetting is the first step towards remembering; and why memory is about the future, not the past.
