The act of recording requires a surface onto which a mark can be made. While a mark might have a referent, it is ultimately a record of its own making. A surface can be conceived of in a number of ways: a song can be recorded onto tape, and the memory of a summer onto a song as well.
Over three weeks, the digital discourse series Coming to Know responds to three modalities—tuning, recording, and digging—proposed by the exhibition A Slightly Curving Place. A conversation with a key contributor to the exhibition will focus on practice. For the panel, scholars, archaeologists, and historians will each present a concept that responds to the exhibition. An exchange between them will open up to a public discussion.
