Demos: Souvenirs

Digital photography has largely replaced film for the average picture-taker. This technology allows people to easily take and store numerous photos, and gift-give photos to distributed friends and relatives over the internet. Yet, digital photos have lost many of the affordances for opportunistic face to face sharing within the home.

Souvenirs is a system that attempts to situate and encourage digital photo sharing in the social setting of the home by linking photo sets to physical memorabilia. These mementos trigger memories and serve as social instruments; a person can enrich their story-telling by moving the physical memento close to their large-format television screen, and the associated photos are immediately displayed.
