Installation. i-CRACKED by Slobodan Zivic
Riche 13 October - 5 November 2016

A female came in to our shop holding her broken iPhone screen with bandaged fingers. We’ve seen a lot of broken iPhone screen problems ranging from tiny hairline cracks to phones where the screen was a maze of pieces. This womens phone screen had shattered. She had been holding the pieces in place with packing tape but clearly had been using it even though splinters of glass were peeling off and cutting her fingers as she continued to use it. Clearly, she couldn’t be separated from her phone for long. Even as she stood at our counter, ready to hand it over for a much-needed screen replacement, it rang and we watched as she lifted the broken, cracked phone to her face. We waited … we’ve seen a lot of people make “one more phone call.” As she concluded her call, we were horrified to see blood trickling down the side of her face. Her broken iPhone had cut her ear! Even though she’d already sliced her fingers more than once, she had no idea she had just cut herself again with this cracked screen.
