These panes, shattered into a thousand pieces, trapped in cement, like the fossil traces of a bygone age, confront us with our behavior before the GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple) entities. In returning to the state of mere physical mirrors, they also remind us of the eventual end of our digital identity.
Both a screen and a mirror, the smartphone, this identity box of each and all, is an object of memory and illusion. The smartphone is an object requiring almost constant attention: we protect it, we talk to it, authorize it to remember moments of our lives and to inform third parties of our every move, so much so that it rapidly becomes irreplaceable. But in no time its status changes from a precious and essential object to junk.
