Compressed proof of existence.

I walk around with strips of hook and loop fastener attached to the soles of my shoes.
I collect these strips during a period of time.
They are like units of data, or pixels, or drawings.
They are inadequate registrations and memories of my life experiences.
Then I organise them in a composition.
Then I start moving them and sticking them together until I can’t go on.
The end result is a small parcel — compressed proof of existence.
