Fantastic Smartphones – ECAL MID

Fantastic Smartphones, alternative accessories, interactive installations and machine performances highlight the excesses relating to our use of these devices. By imagining innovative ways of interacting with our smartphones or by delegating our repetitive actions to machines, this exhibition takes a critical look at a society that has become addicted to an object that seems to have become indispensable : the “smart” phone.

Follower – Attention, surveillance and physicality of social media

In the social media age, one’s importance or relevance is typically measured in online followers—as that number goes up, the level of validation we feel does too.
