Digital Remembering, the paper, analyses the video installation of the same name curated by the presenter. Digital Remembering brought together the work of six digital artists, of diversity but related to common themes. The viewer was invited to immerse themselves in the projected visual imagery that explored themes of memory, place and identity. They were invited to create their own stories and engage with possibilities of remembering. The works use family chronicling through home video making. The focus was on family memories and acts of remembering . The images of the family construct both a presence and an absence, that which is no longer present. This paper will explore and show excerpts from the six works and invite audience discussion and reflection as it indeed did during the exhibition, with emphasis on one of the works, Dancing with Mrs Dale, created by the presenter.
