Ubiquito is an Art project composed of series of seeing objects that capture and display clips from your life. Each object in Ubiquito embodies characteristics according to its own attributes. When you are looking at the object, it’s also staring at you and perceive you in its way. Your clock conceives your life frame by frame. You look darker in a table lamp’s eyes. You are a black and white sketch to your pen and notebook. Your lipstick only cares about your lips and ignores other body parts. You are a picture of contact in front of a telephone.
