The act of observing or interacting via technological devices generates repetitive gestures. We use these gestures to access our technological devices. Over time, these gestures become recognizable actions intertwined with our personal, social and cultural identity. They become part of our everyday rituals.
On one of my many ritual walks around the St. Henri hood (Sud-Ouest, Montreal), I’d come across an array of objects scattered along the streets, alleyways or in someone’s backyard. Some of these objects were still intact and recognizable, while others were in the process of partial decay – still hinting as to their past purpose.
And there were still others which had been busted up so bad – removed from their original material body, that their physical presence had become a sort of abstracted entity onto themselves. However, what all these objects seemed to have common, was that they had been either rejected, lost, or left behind – their purpose served?
