Project Description

Completed as part of the 2015 ISTD Student Assessment under the theme of ‘Milestones,’ the initial aim of this submission was to explore the milestones of human memory – namely the mind’s journey from perception to recollection. However as the project progressed, this scientific narrative was developed alongside the more human and personal aspects of memory.

The result was a book with a dual narrative: one half dealing with the literal journey of a memory through senses, neurons and synapses. The other with ephemeral excerpts of real memories and stories. This content was self-authored, gathered through research and a series of interviews. The typography, imagery and design of the book serves to contrast these two very different sides of the same subject.

This project was awarded a Merit by the ISTD, one of four awarded in Ireland that year.
