Life Echo: experience the future of memory

Activity: Talk or presentationAcademic conference

Description

A Life Echo is a personalised soundscape of a person’s most
powerful, positive memories. The process involves the creation of a
personalised phonic memory atlas, using sound triggers to
stimulate memory, communication and interaction. Developed by
Justin Wiggan, the process has been used with patients receiving
end of life care, the homeless, the fire service and school children
during morning registration. The process has helped to enhance
well-being and reduce anxiety. At this encounter come and
experience creating a memory atlas: the first stage in making your
own Life Echo; and test out the app prototype for locating sounds
that anchor your memories.
