Nour Tabet will explore the paradox of technology (looking toward to the future) with nostalgia (remembering the past). Memory is a search engine that creates empathy and nostalgia when triggered. With today's technological advancements we have the ability to induce this empathy at any moment, we have reached the end of forgetting and the era of nostalgia on demand. We can take out our phone to go back our timeline on Facebook of the photo we posted 7 years ago. We get notifications from google web photos reminding us of that trip we took to the beach on the same day last year.
