Defragmentation

Several years ago, I accidentally formatted the hard drive of my computer. 170 gigabytes of data accumulated during two years were lost. I felt especially sorry for the photographs. I was only able to recover a few files. The mutilated photos of my personal past were like wrongly assembled puzzles. Then I started thinking about the properties of my own memory. During a lifetime it “collects” terabytes of information. Some events stick in your memory, abounding with small details, people’s faces, while others become blurred silhouettes or disappear, leaving no trace whatsoever. Memory is selective. But the selection criteria are not known to me. I want to know what program is being run by my “bio-computer.”

This work represents a segment of my life, overgrown with lots of recollections. My life goes on, the database is being constantly upgraded, but the answer to the main question “why?” has not been found yet.
