A box featuring two books and ephemera: an accordion book on objects found, given, and purchased, with a data analysis of each; a folded book with a mirror about a lost keychain; pieces of the artist's broken hard drive are housed inside of the box along with a list of the hard drive's file contents in ink transfer. The artist states that this is a container of personal memories and items, and offers commentary on how we now store our memories in the digital form without regard to what we will do if that digital form breaks.
