PIN, date of birth, social security number, telephone number and passport number ...
Where is the value of all these significant number clusters? Especially, when the memory is missing, when the information behind is no longer available?
How do dementia-affected people feel as they have lost the ability to recall their own memories?
The memory does not only live in the brain, but also in the body.
The body is a vessel for memories, which can be recalled in different ways.
a brain that forgets
a body that remembers
a space where memories turn into experiences
a place in the past that no longer plays a role in the future
everything becomes the present

In the piece, time is taking back its role as dimension. The perception of duration and occasions receive their own space.
