Project description:
Today, the main mediators of memories are digital devices. We are storing more and more important personal items in an intangible form. The way we store our memories also has an impact on how often we go back to them and whether we share them with our loved ones. Nido figures are guardians of our memories. Their job is to materialize, anchor and preserve personal memorabilia. The objects do not reveal their functions to us through their form, they are kind of hiding-places, which only their owner knows about. Each of them holds a hidden pen drive, on which we can save selected files, representing important memories.
