Memory Loops is a virtual memorial for the victims of National Socialism. Michaela Melián’s audio work of art comprises 300 German and 175 English audio tracks which can be found on a map drawn up by the artist and downloaded free of charge. Each track is a collage of voice(s) and music thematically tied to a place in the former ‘Capital of the Movement“.
Together with Markus Weisbeck from Surface they have selected MESO to execute the project, which included managing a 5,5 gigapixel city map (measuring 87266 x 63346 pixels) in a very immersive Flash application, as well as creating a technical framework in different versions of browser compatibility in order to reach the highest possible number of users (HTML-Version for mobile devices, HTML-Version for desktop systems and Flash-Version with a hand drawn, interactively scalable map of the Munich city). The website is featuring almost 24 hours of audio, stored in over 2GB of MP3 files.
