Uncomfortable Memory

Article by Sílvia Marimon Molas in the leading Catalan newspaper ARA on how Spanish authorities are relocating symbols of the dictatorship.

“It (Augmented Reality app) would make visible what Franco wanted to hide and would bring out everything that is hidden and buried in the Valley, transforming the totalitarian story into a polyphonic memory,” says Vogelaar.

This could be a tool as long as there is no physical transformation of the Valley, but archaeologist Alfredo González Rubial, who has excavated Cuelgamuros to trace the lives of prisoners who did slave work there, believes the monument cannot be left as it is.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of digital instruments is rapidly increasing.

As the possible consequences of digitization are more sharply outlined, this opens new possibilities for spatial organization.

This urges us to reconsider the guiding principles and models for the urbanization of technology we want to follow and what our city visions are.

Hybrid Space Lab analyzed “Valley of the Fallen” near Madrid – the pompous tomb for the fascist dictator Francisco Franco.

They suggest leaving it unchanged but covering it with a new critical layer.

Using augmented reality, they want to make hidden layers visible and write history from the victim’s perspective.

In the Digital Age, the face has become the most important representation of our identity.

Firstly, to show ourselves to the world we use selfies and Zoom-meetings, which focus almost solely on the face.

Secondly, digital facial recognition and emotional detection promise to identify the other on the basis of the face, and even unveil their most secret feelings.

This focus on the face is not only the direct consequence of fast technical developments, but is also the result of a deeper desire stirring contemporary society.

Cities in the Loop:
Re-coding the Circular City
11.00-13.00, 1 July 2022

@ Hybrid Space Lab

 

The notion of a circular city has taken to occupy center stage as a main concept for sustainable zero-waste urban futures.

And yet, as one takes a closer look, the circle expands in multiple ripples and loops, revealing the sheer complexity that envisioning – let alone developing – circular cities entail.

Because of its overwhelming quality, the complexity of urban circularity has conventionally been handled within clearly defined distinct disciplinary domains.

Nevertheless, crosscutting and intersecting all the aforementioned dimensions is needed in order to find an approach to the circular city that reflects the complexity of urban ecosystems.

Hybridization enables us to focus on the interconnection of different domains, temporalities, and actors at different levels, overcoming and rejecting hierarchies, and grand narratives. (Lyotard, 1979)

The emergence of the “trans”, the plural, and the augmented enables us to frame critical perspectives on heritage constructs. (Gwiazdzinksi, 2016)

@ Hybrid Space Lab

 

Contemporary societies are faced with multiple crises, including climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice and turmoil, geopolitical conflict and war, humanitarian crises, energy emergency and food insecurity.

In this permacrisis (permanent crisis), humans are left with the bitter reckoning that their limited, biased attention span allows them to only deal with and care about a very limited range of emergencies.

Accustomed to the places we daily encounter, we often overlook or forget about the traces of contested pasts that surround us.

Over centuries, Dutch cities have been defined and grown aided by the benefits resulting from Dutch colonial rule in overseas territories.

Global networks and infrastructures were established for unevenly channeling the movement of people and goods, contributing to further stratify societies and spaces.

Deep Space is a long-term investigative program initiated to deal with politics of memory, controversial space and monuments, heritage and digitalization.

How to transform and re-signify Valle de los Caídos (“Valley of the Fallen”), the Francoist monument in the Sierra de Guadarrama close to Madrid?

Valle de los Caídos with its 152-meter-tall cross visible from more than 30 kilometers away and its “basilica”, a 263-meter long crypt with a 52-meter high vault cut out of the granite mountain rock, is one of the world’s most controversial monuments.

The combination of physical and media space, of local place and digital networks, is coined Hybrid Space.

Space today is transformed by technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality, becoming increasingly hybrid. With the Internet of Things (IoT) Hybrid Space is becoming ubiquitous.

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data have the ambition and potential to algorithmically manage these Hybrid Spaces.
