This work is an electric mechanical cube. There is a mechanical structure above the square pillar, and the lid is usually open. When the audience come near the work, the work will display text that invites the audience to place their mobile phones on the platform. After the audience place their mobile phones on the platform, the lid will close and it will remain locked for 15 ~ 20 minutes. During this time, the device will discharge the audience’s mobile phones until the batteries are almost empty. The lid will then open and give an alarm sound to notify the audience, reminding them to retrieve their phones.

The installation creates 15 to 20 minutes of peaceful time to isolate the audience from mobile phones, which have become an essential gadget of everyday life.

On average, a person spends more than 4 hours a day watching, listening and using a smartphone, and people are growingly attached to their phones. This work attempts to invite or force the audience to briefly part ways with their daily essential, the mobile phones, for 15 to 20 minutes.
