Memory Triggers examines how to articulate places that now exist solely in our memories. The project represents an introspection through past living spaces, aiming to emphasize what our memories ultimately preserve the most: the experiences lived in those spaces. This introspection is presented through an installation offering three progressive readings: a text, a dreamlike object, and an immersion in augmented reality. Stemming from Marion’s memories, each object reflects the essence of the atmosphere lived in those spaces, ultimately creating a typology of spatial experiences. These objects serve as Proust’s Madeleine, enabling individuals to revisit their own memories of past spaces.
