Chris Doyle: Memento Vivere
Jun 29 - Jul 30(All times are in PDT)
Commissioned by CAP UCLA to commemorate the UCLA Centennial in collaboration with the Student Committee for the Arts, Memento Vivere is a project that reimagines the form a contemporary public artwork might take in a contemporary world. In December of 2019, sixty UCLA students participated in an improvisational video shoot on the campus. All were asked to perform a physical gesture that was related to their own relationship to time. These short videos are assembled as the minute hand on a digital clock, positioning these sixty students as literal time keepers of the future.
Memento Vivere can be downloaded for free from the app store for iWatch, iPad or iPhone, where it keeps time in the digital world.
The hour-long video loop can be viewed in its entirety at CAP UCLA’s YouTube channels
