Arthur is a computer programmer who builds virtual machines. There is usually enough physical redundancy that nothing can catastrophically fail, but once in a while things do. When cascading hard drive controllers fail at Arthur’s work, large amounts of data are lost. He has collected the offending hard drive controllers that have failed him, as trophies of a sort. He asked me to construct a wallet out of them for him. This is the result, it’s made of black canvas and five broken hard drive controllers sewn on like buttons.
