Smart Tunnel Wheel, Myriam Thyes, 2022, photomontage (10000 x 10000 oder 5000 x 5000 px)
All kinds of people are using their smartphones. The displays don’t show any apps – only the sensual movements of the hands. Each pair of hands plays both roles from Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” at the Sistine Chapel: God the father and Adam, whose fingers touch each other. Smartphones are the new saints to which we cling and who guide us on our ways – they are the amulets of our time.
