The Art of Memory: Memes and Mnemotechnics

Presented by Kirk Everist.

The classical and medieval art of spatial mnemotechnics - which has been called the Art of Memory - uses a combination of story, space, and striking imagery to create a powerful system for processing information. In essence, the user imagines a personal space inside her head, and populates it with emotionally charged images associated with the ideas, words, or experiences she wishes to remember. In this workshop, Dr. Everist will present the basic tools used in the Art of Memory, and discuss their implications and applications in our reference-rich, postmodern age of information.
