This project consists of nine photographs of a pre-smart phone Nokia mobile printed at 1 to 1 scale. Each phone displays a succession of text messages regarding the process of the phone's coming into being, either at the moment before it enters utility or the moment after it has become broken. This work aims to investigate our relationship with things and, to a larger extent, technology, a relationship most often limited and located somewhere external to the thing; we are estranged from an object’s capacity to speak for itself because we only see it through the utility and possible market value it represents.
