There are few techniques of conservation.  
Only certain things can be conserved.

The desire of the collectioner is to capture memory and hold it
in his hands. but countless things pass through his fingers.

An object's memory is necessarily different, and in a
different time than human's memory.  
Objects are just the skeletons of things past.

All images disappear in time.

Each light box has a theme.  belief-religion, text-culture,
world-space, and body-self

In flasks of purified water, coiled like DNA, are whole strips
of 35mm film.  The flasks of the "body-self" box are filled
with alcohol which slowly dissolves the film and dilutes it's
color in the liquid.
