Title
Don’t Boil Your Phone In Coca-Cola
Year
2018
Duration
5 min 27 s

This is a parody of a Youtube series where a man submits brand new smartphones into precarious circumstances, such as boiling a phone in coke, or placing it in liquid bromine. Rather than an homage to the “move fast and break things” ethos of Silicon Valley, this video, shot on a street in Bushwick (Brooklyn, NYC) with a camping stove, explores how one might use everyday materials to bring the dominant white interface of technology to another, Black, realm. How does one decolonize an interface?
