  • I take 10-100 photos every day with my phone. I want to remember the cherry blossoms and fallen petals. But when there are 31,255 images stored in my Recents album and I cannot find the moments that I miss, maybe I have lost them all. I imagine the digital space to be one of permanence, free from deterioration and loss. But keepsakes can turn into clutter, and unlike printed matter, digital images seem to lose presence and value with time. This project is an ongoing effort to recover moments decaying in the excess of an overflowing archive.
