Dennis Del Favero: Pentimento [2001/2002]
The project explores a news report detailing the discovery of an unidentified body in bushland on the outskirts of Sydney. A young man and woman are arrested. They accuse each other of murdering their father whom they allege was sexually abusing them. The crime is reconstructed by means of the specific patterns of viewer/database interactions. These interactions evoke a large scale and evolving memory whose fragments comprise the separate narrative fragments of each of the protagonists.
