A couple of years ago, my friend Meghana and I decided to create a crowd sourced project called Tangible Memory. The premise is simple: if you have an object that defines one of life’s most significant moments, take a picture of it and tell us about it. We would then collate the photo together with the answers to 3 questions, and create a post about that object and the associated memory.
You can look at it here: http://tangiblememory.tumblr.com/
Recently, the site has seen a lot of renewed activity and interest and I would like to rejuvenate it. So I am asking you to share your stories.
All you need to to do is answer these 3 questions and send post it along with the photograph of your object of sentimental value.
1. Say a little about yourself; a sense of what you’re about.
2. What is the most significant, memory-laden gushingly sentimental object currently in your possession? (It could be ANYTHING. Try to think of the first thing that comes to your mind. That’s usually it.)
3. What’s the story behind it? (Don’t worry about being judged or about what anyone will think. This is YOUR memory and it’s precious.)
Please share and circulate this post. If it touches you in anyway, I hope you will participate. Send your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
