About the Design

comments from Wendy:

This is one of a series that combines a vaguely scientific look (the equation is an actual formula to measure of how long a memory lasts) with a photo of people caught in a moment in time.

i have another color version of this - but I thought maybe the colors were too harsh. see below. Boy I am behind, I guess this spot is for inspiration, not alternate versions.

I really like your use of color and type mixed with the photograph! I wish I could zoom in to read the type on the bottom - I'm intrigued! Nice work :)

It's even cooler that it's an actual equation! I love how it looks like "Rest"... which is an important factor in maintaining good memory :) Great job! *Kelly -------- Wendy Fessler: Hi Kelly! Thanks so much for your nice comments about my art print - I am copying what it says at the bottom here - it is an actual equation someone worked out to measure memory - that is just amazing to me! Hermann Ebbinghaus extrapolated his hypothesis of the exponential nature of forgetting in 1885. This formula can roughly describe the route of memory: “r” equals memory retention, “s” is the relative strength of memory & “t” is time.
