Memory is the trace and evidence of living and the emotional connection between friends, family, and events. Memory develops and builds up through time. Time doesn't pass, we pass. In that same way, memory doesn't get lost; we lose it.
Memory is disordered and invisible. In this thesis, through the use of contemporary design tools, processes, and technologies a device might be devised which can collect everyday personal data: including the history of a user’s location, purchases, photos, and people they come into contact with. This device would create a ‘life archive’ which could help people with short-term or long-term memory challenges allowing them to maintain their self-identity.
