Ubiquitous Memory: I Do Not Remember, We Do Not Forget

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenAufsätze in SammelwerkenForschung


Wendy Chun takes up the claim that the ubiquity of our digital technology undoes common assumptions about the relationship between computer memory and human habit. Her analysis mobilizes discussions of neurobiology and computer infrastructures to argue that an understanding of memory not as storage, but memory as habit, where habit is “humanly-made nature” allows us to understand the ways in which we engage with our technologies. For Chun, we are not only habituated to the ubiquity of our technologies, our technologies also habituate us to new modes of being connected, to new forms of subjectivity.
