Bloomfield-John F. Kennedy Drive / Lake street, USA, 06.51, Aug. 18, 2017. Today, one year ago. iExist is a collaboration between a human and her smartphone. The smartphone is an extension of the hands and eyes. It is a counsellor, a notepad, a visual diary with personal information. The smartphone bridges capturing a private moment and adding it into our collective existence via internet and social media. The smartphone connects people and worlds like never before, they have become an essential part of our identity.
iExist consists of 365 photos taken with my smartphone. Each day I have taken a photo from a window right after getting up in the morning. The series of photos represents a year of my life, one day after another. The photos are displayed as screenshots, sequential, with indication of the place, date and time as shown on the screen of my phone.
The photos show a moment of consciousness; some facts can be derived from the photos and reading the information. However, most of the information about the day, how did it go, how did I feel, what did I do, whom did I met, etc. remain unknown. It is up to the viewer to interpret such details, one shot at a time or as a series. iExist represents a year of my daily life, my visual diary.

Bathtime fun 💦
Summer activity when bored at home ~ just mix some shaving foam with food colour and paint away 😅 best part is easy clean up!
We did this yesterday and she's asking to do it again today 😂
Khardungla is the world's highest motorable road open to civilians at a height of 18300 feet. I'd like to ask you guys two simple questions-
1. Would you appreciate a cafe there?
2. If yes, would you buy hot chocolate for 80 bucks?
