Ars Memorativa

Made by Sana Rao

Ars Memorativa is a system that adds a layer of sound to simple, everyday physical objects—transforming them into speaking and listening objects, "objects that hold memory."

The users are people who are looking for poetic interactions, who are more cautious and clear about adoption of technology and will do so only if it provides them the kind of interaction they want to have.

The technology is a layer of code, custom electronics, and off-the-shelf components, designed to be adaptable to a range of applications.

The first product in the Ars Memorativa family is a simple glass bottle, re-imagined as a space to hold memories.
