Is there a future for family heirlooms and physical memories?
With the age of the internet in full swing, what is the future of family heirlooms and physical memories. We all know fewer photographs get printed every day, they stay as data for years on end. This is not a totally negative thing, but what happens to the objects and memories we have collected over our lives.
Tactile interaction with an object can conjure so many emotions an image simply can't. I fear in the future we may literally lose touch with these objects as more memories and events become digital.
