In this project I would like to explore ways of reperesenting memories in an interactive way, the memories of an individual or a whole culture or of a time period like the 1980s or the 1990s and the significance that those memories hold for the present moment in revealing the truth, the true state of the individual or time era,or his time era.I feel the appropriate form to do this would be in the form of a computer game called "Shattered memory"
