“Ephemera is essentialising disposable information.” is a commentary on the phenomenon of disposable information in today’s throwaway culture. Recognising receipts as an inherently ephemeral source of information, the short-lived usefulness of the information is amplified to enable users to benefit from the clarity of information. The ephemeral information is appreciated and understood before disposal.
The vital transaction information for the users right at the point of payment is emphasised. The information that users desire, like their total savings, is also presented graphically for clear understanding.
 
Before the receipt is printed, the items scanned into the system are rearranged according to their categories, with the food items that require refrigeration right at the top. This also serves as a practical reminder for users to keep their food fresh.
