Daniela’s talk: Materialising Digital Objects of Memory
From the TEDxSheffield website: ”Files with affective content populate our personal devices, from flirty messages on mobile phones to thousands of photos on a laptop. While we may carefully backup important files, they are not integrated into our everyday lives, with the risk that they are soon forgotten, lost within their digital containers. Starting from a field study of mementos in the home, I discuss similarities and differences between material and digital objects of memory and give examples of how digital content can be embedded in physical objects to make personal media an integral part of our lives. Hybrid objects that have a physical presence and digital properties offer new opportunities for the design of technology that is value-centred and fun (as opposed to work-centred and efficient), and can create new ways of relating with our own personal media.”
