Description - Memoryscopes by Ross Gibson
Ross Gibson moves between scholarly and artistic worlds, writing about cultural objects and ideas, making multimedia works, films, poetry, curating in museum spaces and creating installations, amongst other pursuits.
Memoryscopes arrives after decades of Gibson's creating and analysing artworks built from traces that history has left lying around in archives, in landscapes, in objects, in peoples' bodies, in biographies and family histories. This book is an examination of some particular modes of remembrance. Memoryscopes examines how the past has dynamism too, how it is a force always pushing and skewing the present.
