From M3P
Jump to: navigation, search

During the first year of his PhD in 2010/2011, Tony Grimaud made an important point about the idea of Preserving the Present. While projects like the M3P can be seen as exercises in nostalgia or ways to preserve the past or a means to keeping memories of distant years before they fade away completely, it's essential that we keep in mind that the present is very ephemeral and that things happening now (today, this week, this month, this season, this year etc.) are at a risk of disappearing too.
