The Forgetting Curve, 2006-2016
Divibiss JD-7 Random Reminder

I am redoing a 20th century psychology experiment with myself as the subject. This ongoing survey is based on W.F. Brewer’s 1988 experiment, “Memory for randomly sampled autobiographical events.” Every other month since 2006, I wear this vintage Divilbiss Random Reminder for all of my waking hours, taking a photograph and documenting my thoughts and actions on a 3’ x 5” card in response to the beeper’s random prompts.
