The goal of the project is to reframe the emotional process of forgetting an ex-love. Rather than going through the painful process alone, the viewer is able to visualize how their intention to forget is helping them grow. A person must first upload and delete digital possessions from their past relationship to the plant interface. Once they've let the possessions go, the plant will be able to receive water, fertilizer, light, etc.
As children, we are asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" As we get older, the question becomes, "Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?" We spend our lives making and holding ourselves to these resolutions and aspirations but we don't always fulfill them. These memories weigh us down until we allow ourselves to change. I'm proposing something that challenges people to re-evaluate their intentions and consider what's really important from their past so they can move forward.
