Roots is a mobile application designed to impart the practice of mindfulness into our daily photography to augment our natural qualitative memory processes. While instinctual picture-taking and digital archiving continue to grow Roots helps to balance the moments of saving an experience while being active in that experience as well. In addition, Roots attempts to demonstrate the differences between a photo for reminiscing and one that is valuable for only a moment.
