Autobiographical memories and design
MetadataShow full item record
As a designer who has frequent emotional bonds with objects and places, I became curious as to how and why these things captivate me. Why do we cherish what we do? Is it possible to design with this in mind and make meaningfulness an intrinsic part of the design process and outcome? Since our past experiences make up who we are as people, individually and collectively, I start my design investigations with autobiographical memories. Through this methodology I have found a way to capture the essence of memories and present them in new forms. Do these new forms have a deeper level of meaning? The following is my 2-year experiment to try to find out.
