Memory and narrative architecture in To the Moon

  1. I’m curious if you thought it was particularily significant that so many of the “mementos” were simple household objects. Is this supposed to be some kind of comment on memory (that what we remember tends not to be really all that special and significant) or does it speak to the ability for memory (or just everyday life) to imbue a significant amount of meaning in something that seems so insignificant? It just struck me that the chosen “mementos” were rather odd, and I was curious on why the designers decided to use such objects.

    1. @nmullins7 Yeah, I feel like that’s a both/and kind of thing. We project memories onto whatever objects we are attached to at an era in our life. I think mundane things can take on a sacred quality in that way.
