While in the new era of Web 3.0, NFT, virtual reality or video games, I would like to observe the alternative way of seeing a technological device. When the screen is on, we focus on the functionality, colour, design inside the screen but when the screen is off, the fingertips bring us back to the realm of human, physical and reality. The fingerprints hint us like a forensic investigation. What did the user browsed before? Was he aware that the connection between his fingers wandering around the virtual also left traces in the physical? These prints are coming from a shared tablets that can be borrowed from public libraries. The fingerprints that were left are publicly owned. The blurry lines between the private and public, the virtual and the reality make me imagine a world where our human experience is no necessity to differentiate between the virtual and the real anymore. The virtual world may or may have surpassed our expected impact to our real life.
