Design a chapbook about the future. What does the future mean to you and how will you tell the audience about the future that you envision? Make sure that this future is tangible and can be realized within ten years.
The concept of the chapbook is about the future of memory. Everyone has experienced the frustration of not being able to recall a fact from memory. It could be someone’s name, the French for “town hall” or where the car is parked. While it seems obvious that memories decay, like fruit going off, the research tends not to support this view. Instead many researchers think that in fact memory has a limitless capacity. Everything is stored in there but, without practice, memories become harder to access. This means it’s not the memory that’s ‘going off ’ it’s the ability to retrieve it.
