This piece investigates the perceptual states ac-tivated while engaged with mobile technology. Ibelieve the human relationship with such devices iscurrently in the process of replacing our relation-ship with natural living organisms such as animalsand nonhuman environments. Some of the rolesof cell phones and laptops in the 21st century havebecome similar to the purposes of work horses anddomesticated pets prior to the digital age. By that Imean to say that we use these devices for work andpleasure, and indeed form a kind of bidirectionalrelationship with them in order to fulfill our needfor connection in a growingly disparate world.
The use of these devices as mediums for documen-tation and surveillance is a large part of this work.The possibility of capturing our momentary envi-ronment to be contained and redistributed within adigital medium changes the perception of our dayto day landscapes. Through the lens of the digitaldevice humans or able to continually reprocess andredefine what constitutes the content of our lives.
