 IM/​PERMANENT is an installation investigating concomitant fragility and indestructability of technology. The machine draws a parallel between Inca’s long lost technology of Khipu – writing in knots on strings – and the technology of barcodes – labeling and identification system underlying the modern consumers’ society. The project developed from an investigation into human memory function and auxiliary memory devices. The mechanical aspect of IM/​PERMANENT records the viewer’s story and prints and Aztec code on their hand. Once the code is scanned with the specially designed web app, the recorded story is played back. IM/​PERMANENT is an installation investigating concomitant fragility and indestructability of technology.
