Art of memory: Essay question number 9

How has new technology influenced the way we understand memory now? Through the work of two contemporary artists and two contemporary theorists on memory, consider the question in relation to the trace (as both a physical and virtual mark of history).

A pity that our practical assessment is also set in study week (next week) for I quite like this question (though it took me ages to pick) and I won't be giving it the time it deserves.
