Esiod 2015

A customer returns to Vienna after several years to close her account at the bank.

Not only does the bank acount contain financial data, but also memories and personal information of past times.

When the woman tries to unlock the account, the system doesn’t recognise her. She is required to undergo a ‘memory check,’ during which her reactions to the data, videos, and images from the account are observed. Once she gains access to the virtual safe, she uses the archive to reconnect with her past.
