One Memento asks the question, If you could only take one more photo to share with the world forever, what would you capture?
What is One Memento all about?
One Memento is what happens when you cross a time capsule with an art project and then stuff it all into a smartphone app. The creators of this project are asking 250,000 people to choose one photo to be preserved and shared with the world forever.
I really like the idea of being forced to choose just one photo. It's kind of like being asked, "If you were going to be stranded on a deserted island and you could only take one picture with you, which one would you take?"
How does it work?
- Install the free app on your iPhone or iPod touch.
- Open launch the app and then take a photo or choose a photo from your photo library.
- You have the option to apply one of the built-in photo filters and then add a brief note about why you chose this particular photo.
- Post your photo. One you post your photo, you only have two hours to change or delete it.
Once your photo has become permanent, you are no longer able to add new photos, so this really is like a one-shot camera. You can still use the app to view other photos that have been added to the project.
