Event Details

Ever wondered why you remember some things, but forget others? Join us as we explore how Instagram, Facebook and other media affect your real life memories, and the ones you choose to share online. We’ll delve into how memories are formed and stored in our brains, how they help to create our sense of self and the impact they have on relationships. We’ll also look at why we begin to forget and how materialising our memories in physical objects can create meaningful remembering.

Hear from Professor Elise van den Hoven from University of Technology Sydney on her Materialising Memories research program along with neuropsychologist Dr Laurie Miller from University of Sydney and memory object creator Daniel Orth from UTS to ponder memory, love and how objects can help us harness the power of our memory.
