Event Details

Memories can be painful. Who hasn’t lamented over a lost love, friend or pet? It can be particularly hard to farewell a family member. Imagine if you could influence your memories so it was easier to remember or indeed forget? 

With the digitisation of memory existing potentially forever in the thousands of pictures on your phone, in the cloud and across social media accounts, we are increasingly reminded of the past. How can you harness these personal digi-recollections to reflect on the past and present in the way you want to? Could they even help shape future experiences? 

Hear from UTS School of Software’s Professor Elise van den Hoven on her Materialising Memories research program (in conjunction with Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Dundee) along with neuropsychologist Dr Laurie Miller from University of Sydney and UTS’ user-centred designer Daniel Orth to ponder the future of reminiscence, love and how objects can help us harness the power of our memory.
