But what is redundant and forgotten, to one person can be treasure to another.
The same is true about memory. What I remember about an event and then store in memory is not the same as what another may remember. And when my memory is recalled, the past is overwritten with new data from the present. In effect the original memory becomes superseded by its recollection.
These necklaces are made from bits of floppy disks…remember those? Once important because of their capacity to store and transfer data, now superseded…redundant.
What data resides on these? Was it important? I will never know, and now it doesn’t matter…here and now, in the present, they are beautiful things…tomorrow they may just be waste.
