In Memo we find the inside of a deserted office cubicle complete with shelves, carpet, wastepaper bin and other miscellaneous, commonplace “props”. Within this interior a ghostly slither of light moves back and forth, unremittingly. The attentive viewer soon realizes that this faint light corresponds to the once-present photocopying machine and its recurrent use. Traces of its presence are left in the form of continued splashes of leaked light on the walls surrounding the place where it once stood. Memo here forms a trope which encapsulates the idea of the transience of technology, and in turn, of memory.
