The Receipt of Memory is a device that catches memories. By drawing a memory on a foggy screen, you allow the device to read your mind. It then prints out a receipt of your memory, enabling you to retrieve memories that would otherwise be forgotten.

The design of the device is inspired by inadvertent distraction during a conversation. Even though you clearly hear the words and sentences, in the next moment the memory of what was said is gone.
