To have an eidetic memory is to possess the ability to recall memories with extreme precision, not just a visual memory but an all-encompassing multi-sensory experience. This affects a rare number of people. Our daily saturation of visual material only separates us further from those that possess an eidetic memory. In response to this, we are developing unique multi-sensory interventions in an attempt to encode memories that are more encompassing, closer to that of the eidetic.
Our first exploration is the modular concrete paver, found all over the city and insignificant in visual appeal. Through specialist surface treatment we have emphasized the material’s properties by expressing its responsiveness to moisture. It reveals patterns in response to the moisture content in the atmosphere, heightening the senses of the passer-by; in turn imprinting the moment on their mind.
