English abstract:
In recent years HCI-related research has shown an increasing interest in systems designed for supporting human memory. However, many of these systems focus more on the technical challenges, especially around data collection and retrieval. In this paper we introduce three ideas for augmenting digital images to support recollection, reminiscing and reflection. Three playful applications are proposed that are motivated by related theories in psychology. They employ experimental concepts by modifying images in different ways before displaying them and hence adding additional value. Our intention is to activate the observer's memory, to focus on the detail of things and to take a look "behind the camera". We propose that such approaches can encourage more mindful engagement with the huge amount of digital images available and promote positive effects linked to reminiscing
