My thesis is a speculative design about human memory. I invented a bank that converts human memory into digital language and stores it in currency. The currency contains personal information and memories, which are renewable at any time. I created new digital languages and graphic elements to store memories and identity. The concept speaks to a near future where paper currency is increasingly irrelevant for financial transactions, and where social relationships have rising value.
The overall design was inspired by many small pixel-level forms, such as QR codes and any digital code. In addition to the four languages, I used colors with various forms, layers, and gradient required for encryption.
A number of new digital languages have been created for privacy of individual memories. The first language was the singularization of the alphabet into the symbolization of it. And I repeated the symbols in the second language, and it is produced the grid, and thirdly, the patterns that I extracted from them. Fourth, I combined the grid languages into one, and then produced a typeface on the grid derived from singularization and iterations. Basically, using these four languages, they contain keywords that are encrypted with money. I organized shape and color by dividing the emotional keywords of memory into nine categories.
The front of the money contains the profile of the individual and the back contained certain memories. Profiles include name, occupation, age, personality, and characteristics by area. Certain memories used keywords in them to capture accurate, granular memories.
