Undisruptive interactive product idea to trigger memories.
This project used embedded triggers in personal objects to upload personal videos via blue tooth. The reader of the triggers was further embedded in an old Bush radio used as a jewellery box.
"The connection with the immersive feelings of 'self' illicited by accessing memories reinforces personhood and identity.There are times when this may have been temporarily fragmented due to number of factors such as change and stress. Anecdotally it is well established that emotional memories and other self-referential activities can be triggered powerfully by music."Music is such a sought-after stimulus," says Petr Janata (Associate Professor at University of California Davis in the Psychology Department and Center for Mind and Brain).
"It's not necessary for human survival, yet something inside us craves it". My aim is to create a pre-emptive tool to help therapists who work with this group. The big idea is to realise a digital memory scrapbook with related non-pharmacological triggers such as smell, touch and music accessed via digital passports or related personal objects. "
