MOBILOGY – Questioning The Usual

MOBILOGY – Questioning The Usual

“What we are talking about is brick, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, our schedules, our rhythms.” We certainly live, of course, we breathe, we walk, we open doors, we go down stairs, we sit at a table to eat, we sleep in a bed to sleep How? When? Why?

Describe your street. Describe another one. Compare.

Take inventory of your pockets, your bag. Ask yourself about the source, use and fate of each of the objects you remove.

Question your spoons.

What is under your wallpaper?

How many steps does it take to dial a phone number? Why ?

Why do not we find cigarettes in grocery stores? Why not ?

It does not matter to me that these questions are here fragmentary, hardly indicative of a method, at most a project. It matters to me that they seem trivial and futile: that is precisely what makes them as, if not more, essential than so many others through which we have vainly tried to capture our truth. “
