4.7 Million Stolen Passwords, Turned Into Fancy BooksS

Forgot Your Password? is an eight-volume set of light reading by artist Aram Bartholl. Inside those eight volumes you'll find every single Linkedin password that was stolen then leaked online last year. All 4.7 million of them.

Not that Aram stole them. They were just easy enough to find that he found them and had the idea for this.

Printed in alphabetical order, there's no other identifiable information. Just the passwords themselves, which were stored in what's known as cleartext.

The books are going on display in various galleries next year.
