Ars Memoria creates a framework of experiences and ideas for an information system that ties the realm of paper information and museum like tangible objects to the dematerialized digital world: looking for new ideas in old things and relating old principles to the latest discoveries. It works to enhance recall, reuse and reconfigure experiences and ideas by
- combining objectifying knowledge systems with idiosyncrasies of personal insights and;
- allowing associative interplay between tactile, textual, pictorial and auditory information items;
- tracing sources up- or down-stream through a delta of connections or drifting of arteries;
- easing the repetitive tasks of track keeping thus freeing time and energy for discoveries and insights through a 'combinatory art' (ars combinatoria).
