Always + Forever, handstamped balloons, ink, dimensions vary, 2016.

Always + Forever explores the physical connection between ourselves and our devices. Beginning as an attempt to count my interactions with my iPhone for the course of the week, each balloon represents an accumulation of small encounters. Stamped with suggestive phrases, such as “finger your phone” or “I want to touch your interface,” each balloon, though appealing from afar, appears shriveled and bodily upon closer inspection.
