Objectified Memory

info

What are the stories hidden in our personal belongings? Objectified Memory is a conceptual app, that aims to reveal these stories. By 3D scanning an object a unique dataset is created, that is used to encode digital data; memories, like photographs. The encoded memory can only be revisited by scanning the exact same object again. If the object gets lost, destroyed, or broken, the memory is lost for ever.
