Connected Memories is a machine that symbolically function processing and bringing to the conscious level stored remembering. The work structure is made by a database in expansion that stores memories in form of narrations and audio visual. 
The installation is formed by two transparent light sensible sculptures that dialogue between each other, exchanging memories, feelings and remembering. Each head has a Bluetooth and the people could interfere in the dialogue by sending text messages and videos using their mobile devices. The system immediately reproduces the files through a synthetic voice and TV, which are stored, been part of the head’s collective unconscious memory database. The heads also emit feelings that are expressed through light intensities that feel the user presence in the space.
