A participatory installation that connects two people through the language of their memories.
How can a device illuminate the ways in which remembering is a generative act?
Mnemograph is a participatory installation that connects two people via the language of their memories.
Sitting at a one-person writing desk, the participant is invited to choose a prompt and anonymously contribute a handwritten memory in response. The participant inserts their memory into a slot in the desk, and, through a process of automation, they get back a print of someone else’s similar memory.
Mnemograph is an experience designed to create brief moments of connection between stories, an uncanny glimpse into the life of someone else.
