14 Devices

This self portrait looks at how technology has crafted and changed my lifestyle through the years. From my first telephone call to my current smartphone, the timeline lists fourteen obtained devices in a chronological order and highlight which aspects of my life these things have influenced (communication, entertainment, management and media). It outlines the slower paced periods of my life where everything was rooted in a very manual and physical process. And visibly indicates when devices started to speed up the way I lived through the progressive digitalization of many aspects of my life.
