The receipt consists of all my possessions which I am looking at as non-essential or unnecessary in the world. Everything on the receipt was measured to determine the space it occupies. The total space came to 1587 sqft. which is much larger than my dwelling space. 


In the end, the receipt recorded everything I owned, including my own body.
