The gathering of collective memory. A pre-literate notion of memory, in a communal way, something commemorative rather than putting a memory in a container. What we thought it was going to be changed completely. We are in that way changing our memory of what it was supposed to be. What are you able to collect? Memories? Objects? People? A collection of texts and people, collecting and composing each other? Somehow it's not even important that we have all the knowledge, what's important is the living, generative sense of the collection.

Ilinx is an online experiment that explores the relationship between computation and humans as a phenomenal world extending the existential search for knowledge.

The research around the project was done through reading, writing and re-editing of texts and software, theory and fiction. These formed a collection of materials to be interconnected with each other, creating a map and navigating through it as the work progressed.

The result is an explorable diary and labyrinth where humans and machines, texts and codes melt togheter taking the shape of an hypertextual theory-fiction.
