Remnant: Handwriting Memory Card


Remnant is a greeting card that merges the affordances of physical materials with the temporal malleability of digital systems to create, enshrine, and reinforce the very thing that makes a greeting personal: the hand of the sender. The card records both the timing and the form of the sender's handwriting when it is first used. At a later time, collocated output recreates the handwriting, allowing the invisible, memorized hand of the sender to write his or her message directly in front of the recipient.
