UN Headquarters in New York

Collected Memory premiered at the United Nations NOVUS SDG Moonshots Summit in the General Assembly Hall of the UN Headquarters, New York, on July 20, 2019.

The Summit: Uniting Generations for Sustainable Action

The Summit is an intergenerational platform where technology meets humanity, providing pioneers, entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 companies, thought leaders, and youth an opportunity to unite in action around the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

As the first contributors to Collected Memory, summit participants could write down their visions and hopes for the planet, detailing how they would like to contribute and what it would take to achieve their aspirations. Read more about the summit participants’ ideas and visions HERE.

Collected Memory: Artistic Expression and Conscious Living

Collected Memory presents a body of artistic research connected to current science on consciousness and the enormous untapped potential within our consciousness. The artwork embraces diversity and underscores the importance of a more sustainable, responsible, and conscious way of living.

The concept is that when people write down their vision for the world, fold the paper, and place it back into the artwork, it activates them both physically and sensorially. Additionally, the collected data is intended to be used in G20’s inspiration bank, where these ideas and visions aim to inspire people to make a tangible difference.
