There were two main sources of inspiration for this project. The first being a Black Mirror episode on memory playback. This episode explored how perfect memory recall - via the use of an implant - could be a positive item in someone's life (such as reliving fond memories), as well as a negative item (such as obsessing over past events to the point where a return to normal life becomes impossible). The second piece of inspiration was drawn from SuperFlux's OpenInformant project. This project was intended to be thought-provoking around the area of privacy and government-surveillance on its citizens. This informed some of the mini-stories in ThoughtBox that explored the area of privacy and the personal-nature of thoughts via a story about negotiating for a car and a reference to 1984's thought police.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
