Project —

Our memory is a mesmerizing object of research, since it is responsible for who we are and how we live as individuals. If we additionally consider the increasing importance new technologies have on society, the creation of a fiction that addresses these issues becomes extremely attractive to the novelist. With this project, Marta intends to reflect on the enduring impact of our memories and their effect on the way we live our lives.
