External Memories

Nowadays, we record more and more, but remember less and less. Most of our memories are about and on the virtual space but not about a real object and in our house.

What if we can recover our lost-memories from object?

In this project, I have made it possible by using QR-code and website technology.The QR-code is integrated into a object. When people scan it, it will lead to a special website, where people can save their memories about this object and read the memories from themselves or others. In this way, we make our virtualized memories regain a tangible medium. A object is no more only a object, but also a external memory of us. People will therefore use a same object longer, and more cherish it.  This will rebuild the co-exist relationship between human and object.
