With the development of more lightweight technologies and the rapid increase in the storage capabilities of such devices, people are beginning to record more of their lives with the devices they carry around with them everyday, such as digital cameras, video cameras and mobile phones. Beyond these everyday devices, more specialized tools for continuously archiving personal experience, or ‘life-logging’, are being developed  bringing Vannevar Bush’s dream of a Memex device  closer to reality. Whilst such records, as Bush envisaged, can support our memory of experiences [e.g. 1, 3], it is also suggested that they may help us to see our experiences from a different perspective and reflect on them [4, 5]. However, there is little research to support such suggestions. This paper outlines a body of research (part of the author’s PhD thesis ) that was conducted with one such device – SenseCam – to explore its potential to support reflection on experience.
