The recall of information associated with recent actions is problematic for all people, especially when one is prone to be distracted or interrupted. In this paper, we introduce Deja Vu Displays as resources for everyday memory recall. These displays augment "knowledge in the head" by visually displaying recent events as "knowledge in the world." As an initial study, we present the design and evaluation of the Cook's Collage, a memory aid for cooking. Our initial studies indicate that people can benefit from this everyday memory aid, and that further exploration of the design and implementation of these displays is warranted.
