Babel Jar
As we now rely on automated algorithms to supply us with "relevant" search results, we have also become more dependent on machine-readable data. This machine-readable data is quite vulnerable to becoming lost if we were to lose access to the machines that can read the information. The objects in the Babel Jar contain data that is much like a message in a bottle. If the viewer can scan the QR code, or open the USB drive or SD card, the URL of the Babel Image will be discovered.
