Recording every detail of your life on digital gadgets could replace the need for biological memory. As an artist whose work considers the nature of recall, this possibility of saving and storing every detail leaves me feeling ambivalent. Is it a positive or negative development? Is it desirable or just inevitable? Does more information bring clarity or, is our individual identity just as closely bound up with the selectivity of our naturally forgetful memory?
