Aoife Ludlow - Remember to Forget?
Jewellery is a personal communicator, a container of significance,
meaning and memory. The objects we choose to wear every day are of particular
importance. This has not been addressed in the design of wearable technology
to date. It is the ability to record and store that is often the primary
focus of computing, and Ludlow examines how personal technology can mediate
and help us reflect on the significance of what we wear. Remember to
Forget? proposes conceptual designs for jewellery pieces, which contain
RFID (radio frequency identity) tags and other hidden technology.
