This project is about erasure. Memory. Forgetting. Data. Archives. Etcetera.
The passages in this book are descriptions of digital photographs that have been deleted. In a culture over-inundated and amassed with digital images and eroded attention spans, David Horvitz decided to start erasing his photo archive. This erasure became an artwork.
“Nostalgia” is the third edition of the Nostalgia Series. It presents 300 recently deleted private digital photographs of the artist, in the form of an image description, the original time of creation and its filename.
The photos from this book will be presented in an installation at Paris Photo at the booth of Jean-Kenta Gauthier in which process they will be deleted.
