IF: Memories

PURCHA$E


I think the trash can is an interesting concept for this topic. It probably temporarily holds more things that are linked to our own personal individual memories than any other device in the world. I also have many "memories" as a kid finding all kinds of magical things in and around alleys and trash cans, that with a sprinkle of imagination could be transformed and transport me to an entirely different world. It's a shame so many of us lose touch with this ability as we get older.

This is a great graphic and also very strange to me, since just such a bin was one of our favourite magical places! It was our gateway to an underground world (ours was empty!).

Very pleasant to look at. And I like the concept of hope in what was at one point considered trash.
