This project is a work in progress. I hardly ever do nothing. While waiting for the bus my mobile is my loyal companion. My mind is mostly busy making plans for the future or thinking about the past. It is my wish to feel less occupied and be more aware of distracting habits like checking my phone. In this project I will make my attention span, or the lack of it, visible. I will use photography and video for this. 

This is a photo of my bedroom. I kept a diary that day using arrows made of tape: if  my mind was in the future I made an arrow with tape to the right ->. If I was in the present the arrow is going up. If I was in the past, the arrow went to the left <-. I did this an entire day with an alarm that went of every half hour. It turns out my mind is mostly in the future, planning what to do next.
