Memoblast is a group performance in a fax-based office. Raquel Meyers, Jacob Sikker Remin and Goto80 are office workers who handle the flow of information by following rituals and rules for efficiency. They work with conventional office tools such as text editors and spreadsheets to create graphics, music and memos.
Fax is a dangerous and spontaneous technology, and Memoblast is open for you.

Text mode storytelling occurs in between written text and animation. The graphics appear to be images, but are in fact built with common text characters like O or /. With text mode, we refer to a preset font that is organized in a fixed grid on the screen. The music software we use also operates in text mode, forming a curious link to the visual content.
