Screen Time

2019 - ongoing
Screen Time is a community clock connecting people through their mobile backgrounds. Participants are invited to take part by making a screenshot of their mobile device lock screen and submitting it to the corresponding time slot on the website. The submitted images are then compiled and presented, each being displayed for the single minute at which they were taken. The outcome is a clock that each minute reveals a glimpse into someone else’s life.
