Memories Stimulate Emotional Attachment

A Lancaster undergraduate has collaborated with Recall researchers on her final year dissertation exploring how memories can be used to trigger emotional attachment to technology deployed in public spaces. The student ran a series of experiments in which sets of photographs deliberately designed to trigger memories were shown on public displays. Participants in the study completed regular questionnaires that were designed to gauge their attitudes to the public displays. The student has recently submitted her dissertation for examination and the results of her work have been submitted to PerDis 2014.
