In Geneva and in the West, the use of our mobile phones and smartphones is simple and almost innocent. We move around, we pay, we share our social life through these tools. They are simply an extension of our own existence.
In a humanitarian crisis, such as a war or a natural disaster, this use is just as important to understand what is going on or to find a missing friend. However, the risks associated with this use, especially with data that can be accessed by the wrong people, can have quite dramatic consequences such as increased insecurity, violence, the possibility of being imprisoned or having to flee one’s home.
Digital Dilemmas is an immersive experience that highlights the risks and consequences of using smartphones in times of crisis, perhaps as a way to become more aware of the choices we can make here and now.
