Living Museum of Delhi is a digital depository of spatial and material memories. It documents, preserves and interprets the richness and depth of the city of Delhi through its inhabitants' memories around city-space and materials.

Cities are thickly inhabited by memories. Some aspects of the past are always physically or emotionally inscribed into the built landscape, while others are overlooked or forgotten. At Living Museum of Delhi, the city becomes the stage for memorial performance; and memories often define the physical settings of events through the activities that are enacted at them. One may not remember the historical details of Humayun's Tomb but they will always remember when they first saw it, who was with them, how was the day and other personal nitty-gritty.
Do you remember the huge crimson bougainvillea tree you crossed everyday before catching a DTC bus to office? Do you still collect Ticket-Stubs and preserve Metro Cards and DTC Passes? Does your grandfather's Matriculation Certificate remind you of what this city was once? Do you still remember the one who got away while looking at the fast-moving green-yellow auto-rickshaws of the city? Letters to, and from Delhi, old photographs, mementos, stamps, all that reminds you of this city. How do you remember your Delhi?
