La mano que trina

María Cañas

Life is what happens while we look at our mobile phones. Soon we won't need to read or speak languages, it will be enough to know how to howl. La mano que trina [The hand that trumpets] is a showcase-rebellion on the dark side of technology, the feeling of "techno-paranoia", the religion of the selfie, "technopathies", digital dementia, programmed obsolescence, e-waste, "posthumanism"... it reflects on the meteoric path towards a total "datification", and the fact that we may be turning into data.

"For my one-year-old daughter, a magazine is a tablet that doesn't work. This will be the case until we howl again and climb trees never to come down again." Maria Cañas
