Who among us hasn't lost a gigabyte or 500 of personal photos, original writing, our CD collection that we ripped to MP3 and then sold, dissertations, and treasured voice mail messages from deceased loved ones? Here to help us explore the uniquely contemporary form of misery known as a bricked hard drive is Norwegian artist Thomas Walskaar. In his introduction, he writes:
"My Hard-Drive Died With My Heart" contains online forum posts and tweets from social media on the subject of data loss, from the perspective of people online losing information and dealing with the aftermath of dead or non-functional hard-drives."
The perfect gift for your friend who just lost everything they were working on and hadn't backed up their files in months and it's all due tomorrow. Fuck.
