Abstract

The purpose of this project is not to show how things will be but to open up a space for discussion so that people can form their own opinion about what kind of future they desire (Dunne, A. & Raby, F. 2013). Based on speculative design theory, project explores the value we give to our memories, interveawing fiction and language of the consumeristic world. During the Research, memories of a particular person are considered as consumable objects. Collecting and accumulating these objects, project treats them as data, discussing where does all this sentimental data ends up after losing it’s sentimental value and is it possible to recycle it? Could the “memory” be shared, sold, or replaced - so, we can put it on market? In order to gain necessary information for designing the platform available for trade of the memories, one of the tools applied during the Research was questionnaire. Results gained from 225 respondents indicated that sensations of the particular memory are possible to be described in size, format, taste and condition. Another important conclusion after conducting the questionnaire was that our memories are subjective, both real and not-real in the same way, they are about real social worlds, but they are also imagined. (Oatley, K. 2011). Using design as a medium, the final outcome of the Research is presented as the fictional online market where every memory becomes an item available for purchase with the aim to unsettle the present rather than predict the future (Stephen R. L. Clark, 2011).
