However, to make the artifact project more interesting, we have also chosen to place emphasis on memory and time perception while aging. This boils down to two topics in our memory artifact proposal, “Consequences of people who experiences memory loss”, and “Memory and time perception while aging”.

On the “Consequences of people who experiences memory loss”, the topic will explore different possible positive and negative consequences of those who experience memory loss.
