Memory Map: An Interactive Installation That Maps
Memory Space to Physical Space
Memory Map is an interactive installation in which the memories, reflections, and anticipations of visitors become critical aesthetic elements. The physical space of a hall becomes a metaphor for the collective memory space of those who have visited the installation- for example, with the voices of those older than the present viewer coming from in front and those younger coming from behind.. The installation explores interface issues of 3-D sound and the mapping of conceptual abstractions to physical space.
