We despise passwords, yet we all use them every day. Most of us we imbue them with meaning: our hopes and dreams, our dearest memories, our deepest emotions. They unlock more than our accounts.
Join us and celebrate the encapsulated stories in passwords by creating works inspired by the hidden meanings of our old passwords.
