Anamnesis means remembrance or reminiscence, the collection and re-collection of what has been lost, forgotten, or effaced. It is therefore a matter of the very old, of what has made us who we are. But anamnesis is also a work that transforms its subject, always producing something new. To recollect the old, to produce the new: that is the task of Anamnesis.”

“Benjamin Freeth is a digital media artist whose practice incorporates sensor based technology, code, sound, and moving image. His work focuses largely on the creative potential for technology to be manipulated to create performances and installations exploring transformation, ritual, drone, and noise.
At Render 2011 he presents a new performance work ▲†۞†▼ (Sküll Köntröl).
Invoking weird materialism and referencing the Real (the undead) the work proposes a necro – technical alliance bridging our technologically saturated world and a more primitive world of dead matter.”
