The architectures represent the solid memory of the mankind: their monumental forms express the culture, sensitivity and technique of the society that built them. They enclose spiritual and functional spaces and show us their mute facade through time. Expanded_memory is created using an algorithm that processes the images of architecture in a continuous flow, like memory, an uninterrupted process that is renewed through societies and men. Fragments of architectures are digitally expanded in an automatic attempt to complete their construction: the result is the dissolution of the volumes in a new abstract configuration, dematerialized in a continuous and limitless form. Space and time merge as in a faded memory, the memory of all humanity.
