Memory Palace

London - Victoria and Albert Museum


The interactive installation created by Johnny Kelly for the Memory Palace exhibition at the V&A museum in London, invites visitors to draw their memories on a tablet creating a collaborative artwork. Once a week the collected memories are screen printed as an A1 poster and displayed as a part of the installation.

The software uses an algorithm inspired by the Tetris game. It is designed to receive each drawing submitted through the tablets and create a collaborative poster of the individual memories by arranging and scaling the drawings intuitively.
