George Legrady (USA) Pockets Full of Memories Interactive installation with on-line connection, 2001

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.
