Title: "Pocket Full of Memories" -- Artist Documentation
Authors: Legrady, George
Issue Date: 20-Nov-2006
Abstract: Conceived as an installation on the topic of the archive and memory, "Pockets full of Memories" was exhibited on the main floor of the Centre Pompidou from April 10 to September 3, 2001. During this time, 20000 visitors came to view the installation and contributed over 6000 objects in their possession, digitally scanning and describing them. This information was stored in a database and organized by an algorithm that positioned objects of similar value near each other in a two-dimensional map. The map of objects was projected in the gallery space and also accessible online at where individuals in the gallery and at home could review the objects and add comments and stories to any of the them.
