false memory game

False Memory Game is a traditional memory game with a story about memory itself. The playing cards consist of 25 doctored images, honouring a number of psychological experiments, researching the reliability and trueness of autobiographical memories that started in the 70’ and are still developing today.

In most cases, the participants of these experiments were told the research is based on the ability to recall certain events from childhood. In reality, researchers were manipulating the subjects with minimal input to implant false stories into their memory. This was done through conversations and with simple image manipulation.

These experiments revealed how fragile our memory is and how easy it is to create false life stories.
