Pockets Full of Memories consists of an installation and accompanying Web site. The installation invites visitors to digitally scan an object in their possession and answer a set of questions regarding this object. An algorithm classifies the scanned objects in a two-dimensional map based on similarities in their descriptions. Users can review each object�s data and add their own personal comments and stories. The result of the project is a growing map of possible relations between items that range from the merely functional to a signifier of personal value. At the core of Pockets Full of Memories is the notion of the archive and �database,� yet the project operates on the threshold between logical classification and the meanings that aren�t quantifiable.
