Joel Armor: #cloudingjudgements

October 1, 2018October 29, 2018

In #cloudingjudgements, Joel Armor examines his personal collection of cell phone photos and calls on individuals from the surrounding community to examine their own. Armor analyzes the impact that photographic accessibility and infinite storage archives have on each of us, as we repeatedly point and shoot with our phones. Through a variety of outreach programs that include a lecture on memory and mindfulness, a technology detox workshop, and a community-based catalog, participants are asked to consider the effects that these tools impart on our daily psyche, relationships, and personal memory. Armor extends the question into the often invisible and endless archival cloud-based storage system, and the consequences it places on our mental and emotional well-being, as we reconcile the role of hierarchy and space through what he describes as mental hoarding.
