Mnemosyne offers a tactile way of interacting with our memories through an augmented reality app and a series of physical sculptures derived from the geometry of polyhedral honeycombs. The app allows individuals to take snapshots of their visual memories which are interpreted through a neural network into 3d volumes. These can be viewed in augmented reality through a device such as a phone or a tablet and also interacted with by touching the device screen or the surfaces of the sculpture directly. They can then be placed within the honeycomb array of other memories, a Memory Palace, to be recalled for interaction at a future time.
The sculptures include a wall mounted iteration related to the initial framing of the memory image within a square and a vertical iteration with modular components arranged in a stacking system on a cubic base, which allows access from all sides. Both iterations are designed to be replicated as a series using plaster casting so that the project can be installed across several separate sites and can create a further layer of interaction and interconnection between participants in different parts of the world in real time.
