Profound / profane memory:
In the center of “Profound / profane memory” is the point of contact between everyday life and the allocated place of memory. Such a point is the transit space of the sidewalk near the entrance to the necropolis at the Jewish cemetery in Chernivtsi. Continuing my practice of subjective visualization of domestic digital activity, I visualize a geotag that marks the entrance to the memorial.
