Memory Palace
Victoria & Albert Museum

Memory Palace is an exhibition experience at the V&A museum commissioned by Sky Arts and based on Hari Kunzru’s fictional novel about the art of memory. Nexus director, Johnny Kelly, was commissioned to devise an interactive experience where visitors could visualize their one and only memory

Each memory was then digitally preserved as a mosaic of memories, and each week a screen-print of that week’s memories was hung around the exhibition. With over 1000 memories per week for 17 weeks, the results were breathtaking, a true unfiltered slice of real life, showing happiness, loss, love, marriage, birth, death and Star Wars.
