While technology should be inheritedly explainable, our everyday encounters with different technological products often remain somewhat magical.

By documenting the ‘unexplainable and spooky’ annecdotes of our interactions with technology, we are not mystifying technology but taking a critical and poetic lens to reflect our relationship with it.

This project is funded by the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier (FRFAF) at CMU.

Design Overview
The visual design intends to create a sense of digital spookiness. This is achieved by the monotone theme color and ghost-like noise blur. Each chapters are labeled with a synthetic neon color for the ease of identifying content.
