'Embracing memory'
Memory is a link to the outside world and to our inner world. A magical archive. An amazing and complex phenomenon that plays a role in our daily lives. Independently from being a general ability, its content is very personal and unique. Its content creates individuality, it reflects one's identity.
I realized its importance when confronted with my grandmother's disease, Alzheimer. Her inability to recall her own name and the name of her loved ones was to me a moment of shock and awareness towards memory. Since then my curiosity and appreciation for this ability started. My final project is related to memory and its loss. As a designer I want to research how my current development in graphic design can be used to bring awareness about Alzheimer's disease and of memory as a wonderful ability. As a wonder to be appreciated.
