There is so much to be said about the legacy one leaves behind – the tangible and the intangible – that we often overlook what one is currently holding in the palms of their hands.
In the world of art, or any act of creation, ‘legacy’ takes on a whole other level, where the collective consciousness of the things created are bigger than the individual, impacting in ways that are less obvious in character and more influential in its characteristic. This issue, we look at artists who are finding ways to remember more and ‘save’ less, and also those who are finding ways to archive more and ‘delete’ less. We focus on artists who engage with how things are carried forward while being aware of the nature of things left behind that will shape the dialogues and nuances of the future.
