    ABSTRACT

    This research looks at how digital and wearable technology can be used to visualise the phenomena of memory in order to understand the evolving concept of identity.

    Memory is one of the most important factors dictating the human condition and creative expression. Nearly everything we view, assess and relate to, is dependent on the phenomena of memory. We are surrounded by an amalgam of memories which spread over time and space, leaving traces of fragmented perceptions and dispersed information.

    Artists, writers, philosophers and scientists have not ceased in the attempt to tackle, illustrate, visualise and interpret the widespread concept of memory and its relationship to identity through a diverse range of approaches and media.
