A MEMORIAL TO MEMORY | HOMAGE TO RAMON LLULL

Architect Daniel Libeskind’s installation for the Oikos White in the City exhibition located at Brera museum is a study of the nexus of history, culture, architecture and the imagination. 

The sculpture entitled A Memorial to Memory is a 4 meter high fragmented section that depicts the spinning wheels of memory invented by the Catalan mystic and poet Ramon Llull. Libeskind translates Llull’s machine into a mystical avatar of the modern computer into this three dimensional object—an encounter with the abstract.
