Hannah Uncut (2021)

A video slideshow featuring all the photos found on a used phone. Through an online open call we found one person, Hannah, who sold us her phone, knowing that all the photos and videos contained therein would become public.

The photos were kept in chronological order without any editing, filter or judgement.

We have manually changed the duration of every slide to emulate the pace at which we swipe through our phones, although the differences are very subtle, almost imperceptible.

While a number of these photos have likely made their way to the internet, the majority remained unseen, ignored even by their author. Like most photographs nowadays, they accumulate on digital devices or remote “cloud” servers, only to be forgotten and buried by more recent photos and newer devices.

A thick layer of memory foam covers the floor, keeping a temporary trace of the viewers’ presence.
