Atmospheric Memory - Created by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (b. 1967, Mexico City) and co-commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, Atmospheric Memory is an immersive experience that takes over the entirety of Memorial Hall, from lobby to stage, and transforms Beasley-Curtis Auditorium into a jaw-dropping exploration of light and sound. Inspired by computing pioneer Charles Babbage’s proposal that the atmosphere is a ‘vast library’ recording everything we say, this experience invites audiences to listen to the turbulent voices in the medium where we live, the atmosphere: invisible but precious, filled with echoes and sounds from the past. What is the atmosphere trying to tell us?
