'The Memory of Aden Walker' explores the possibility of how humans will relive and explore their memories in a speculative future. The science in the film evolves from our current technological inclinations, reaching a deep confluence of the real and virtual. The film is shown through the memory of a transhuman who loses himself in his own virtual memories of his dead wife. Could neuro technology change the fate of human memory?
The film is experienced through a version of the Google Cardboard, which is a head mounted display allowing users to be fully immersed in the memory. The binaural recorded audio puts the user in a 3d sound space. Apart from being an audio/visual piece, users feel the vibration from the memory allowing the experience to become multi-sensorial.
