hippoCAMPus [1998]

Giulio Camillo, an Italian from the 16th century, dedicated his life’s work to a model which was meant to facilitate memorization, i.e. learning by heart. Using visual symbols, he created that model as a “memory theatre” which he unfortunately never finished. One major protagonist in this model is Prometheus who stole the holy fire and taught humans the knowledge of the gods, all the arts and sciences.
