Today the project got its official start in front of a small audience, consisting of all the team members, plus a delegation from UTS and others who showed interest. Each of us introduced her or himself by explaining why we chose to bring a specific artefact that triggered memories for us. Elise then explained the core reasoning behind the project; no one brought a hard disk or other digital storage device, while many of us have valuable memories attached to media stored on such devices. Here the Materialising Memories project can make a difference and we hope to show our work to the community in the next few years!
