instagram account, (2020)

as the clock strikes 20:20, on every day of the year 2020, i take a screenshot of my smartphone and upload it on the instagram account

the screenshot is a deliberate record that suggests an intention to review or share its contents - a gesture of preservation that has redefined the camera. in this series, i conduct a playful quantitative investigation into digital existence and the capacity of the screenshot as photograph

every screenshot taken memorialises the smartphone’s screen at a point in time, the landscape of its interfaces, the fleeting transitions between surfaces and the role it plays in the daily life of the human

the project was started in 2018, as @20.18.2018 and went on for 3 years where the time of day to take a screenshot corresponded to the digits of that year
