Abstract:

  • Keywords: Hard Drive; Interactive Installation; Digital Forensics; Data Recovery; Media Art; Delete; Save; Rewind; Residue.

    This paper reports on my ongoing practice based research, which aims to examine the importance of the ‘Delete’ function in the context and practice of Media Art. DEL?No, wait!REW is an interactive installation, which de- and recontextualizes the process of data recovery by displaying found disclosures of retrieved data and posing a series of questions to the audience in a recurrent manner.
