The Art of Remembering offers alternative ways of understanding recall explored by Hari Kunzru in his narrative for Sky Arts Ignition: Memory Palace. It features historical mnemonic approaches to developing memory skills: from classical texts (printed in the European renaissance) to Victorian manuals and card games, and also presents contemporary visual interpretations of home, an emotionally resonant space to mentally store what is important.
