Iain Sinclair and Alan Moore ruminate a bit on the shifting of memory and history in this video – the present frailties of it with our shifting concepts from the pandemic juggling, but also the rightist reconceptions of memory played out as power forces.

It brings to mind also the work of Chris Aldrich and his synthesis of various works on space and memory – leylines, songlines – and the nature of colonizers who manipulate space in ways that can destroy or detach cultural memory, discussed nicely with Jorge Arango in a recent episode of The Informed Life.

Some associate this to magick, others to external forces seeking control. Regardless, these become frames by which we can model what we know, have lost, or are uncertain of.
