A Mnemonic Device for Belfast A workshop with Prof. Kate Catterall, University of Texas at Austin, at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.
What is a Mnemonic Device? Mnemonic devices are techniques a person can use to help them improve their ability to remember something. In other words, it’s a memory technique to help your brain better encode and recall important information. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, an artifact, a sentence, or a word.
Which memories, collective or individual, might be recalled in Belfast’s City Center today, 17-yrs into the 21st Century? Which forms, materials and approaches might be most appropriate?
Aim of the workshop To develop and visualize a range of concepts for a mnemonic device(s) for the City of Belfast Proposals by participants will be included in future exhibits and, or publications. Artists, designers, architects, historians, storytellers, writers and non-artistic collaborators welcome.
