How do we experience our lives in the age of mechanical reproduction?

The mobile camera has become an apparatus that does not only work as a documenter, but also a screen. The experiences go a long way of encrypting, a process that transforms them into images.

During these encrypting processes, phantom images are being born into the virtual world as a side effect, these are texts that do not appeal to the human eyes, but for the machines.

Behind these encrypted texts lays a void, an empty conputer language.

By printing and binding these texts like regular human books, I explore the relationship between fearing of the forgetness of experiences and the archives of computerized texts.
