Despite the current strong commercial trend toward wearable technology, this performance considers the role that unworn personal devices have played in our lives. The performance explores the distance we have had between our bodies and our devices and proposes that this distance has given us the space to form meaningful relationships. The parent-child metaphor used within the performance suggests the design of mobile devices and accessories that maintain and enhance our relationships with our devices.
