Long Memory transforms eight external hard drives salvaged from old computers into a kinetic and auditory experience that changes in relation to the proximity of the viewer.  Hard drives act as an extension of our memory in their typical use, but here they appear to communicate with one another as they produce sound in relationship to the presence of the viewer.  As viewers move closer, the movement becomes more frenetic and calms down as the viewer moves away.
