Overview Det tredje minnet

Ada and Georg install the smart box Metis in their living room. Metis sees everything, hears everything and users can speak to it. The box soon becomes a digital conversation and sparring partner for both Ada and Georg, who both struggle with and have their own misgivings about their relationship.

One day, the company behind the technology is hacked and all visual data leaked, including Ada and Georg’s digital footprint. Metis forces Georg to confront the memory of his late parents, while Ada tries to get to the bottom of the ethical issues that arise from having a smart box installed. The presence of the box drives a wedge between Georg and Ada, revealing a relationship that seems to be built on porous ground.

The Third Memory is an exploration of the digital versus the human mind, and what can happen when a new kind of consciousness invades your home.
