Temporary internet photos

Browsing the internet entails roaming around ever-more websites, wandering through portals and services. At a time of virtual travel around the resources of the net, the computer’s hard disk becomes an alternative database to the brain. The nature of search engines means they have to collect temporary internet files. Like it or not, users brings into existence an image bank. Often they forget about the continual process of recording incidental visual information, but they remain powerless in the face of the structure of mechanical memory—images attack them and lie in archives. The machine gives access to what has been seen, but not necessarily consciously. Fortunately, it is possible to throw this information in the trash folder, yet only the initiated know how to do this. They also know how to see what you think only you saw and what you simply had no idea about.
