the garden of reminders
was an experimental space - a website and art installation - where people were invited to stop for a moment and inscribe a precious piece of data they always wanted to remember.
each reminder was printed in a public installation, by printers suspended from the ceiling, and fell into a garden space designed to be one of contemplation as well as play. visitors could wander through the garden, sit on benches, sift through the fallen reminders, or even sweep them into piles. web participants watched the garden grow and evolve via a live video feed online.
the installation ran from 5 - 9 november 2007, in the foyer of the tower building at the university of technology, sydney.
