"If i could examine someone's keepsakes on display in a home, what would it be like if these objects could communicate their sentimental value to me?"This is what Christian Scanes asks himself on this video...
"I wanted to know what it would look and feel like to walk into someone's home and discover that the objects inside are able to express themselves through the lens of an augmented reality, with a particular focus on memory and personal relationships."
And he explains that "the urge to create this was motivated by the experience of relocating from copenhagen to los angeles to san francisco to new york in a very short period of time, resulting in this visual survey of a limited number of objects that one keeps; be they gifts from friends, found objects, thrift store purchases, books, pamphlets, etc. souvenirs from a particular time and place.
The things that we keep become objects invested with extra meaning during times of transitions and frequent departures. they are the constants."
