We’ve spent an entire semester thinking about, researching, analyzing, investigating and building structures and technologies to support memory with technology. We’ve done this as interdisciplinary collaboration with students from across the CMU campus and with the input, time and consideration of dozens of faculty and external experts. As part of this exercise, we’d like you to share your experience of this course, review the investigations and explorations we’ve conducted and the challenges, opportunities and potential memory augmentation with digital technologies we’ve uncovered.
‘Why should (or shouldn’t) we augment memory?’
Create a video (up to 3 minutes) that addresses this question.
Share your personal experience in this course and aspirations for the future of digital memory
Reflect on your experiences of building memory technologies and spaces, and on the outcomes and interactions you’ve had as part of this course.
Talk about what’s next for you and for digital memory?
Upload your video to Vimeo (hard requirement)
Post the video to the #reflections channel on slack.
We’ll compile the videos into a playlist for the group to be viewed together.
When preparing your video, below are some questions you might think about:
You can sketch it, draw it, design it, record it, rip and edit it, or combine all these mediums, in a way that creates a compelling video.
