Fascinated by the age of externalization of memory we live in, I inquired about its antagonist: the Art of Memory. Grandmaster Mind is an initiatory journey through mnemonic techniques. From beginner to Grandmaster, the book travels through the re-encoding of mundane datas (lists, numbers…) into memorable visual narratives.
The design is built on the duality between data and its mental projection. The digital aesthetic acts as a personal database of pre-existing memories and knowledge—a key to visualize to-be-remembered informations.
