'Buy me! Pick me! Here I hang! I already have five cameras, because four cameras is só 2021!'

Recently I saw an advertisement in a bus shelter for a new smartphone with five cameras. Four last year, now five, next year six, and I just imagined that in a few years’ time the whole back of a smartphone will be full of cameras. I thought about how weird it would have looked in the past; a phone in your hand and five cameras around your neck.

With new flashy options we are persuaded to cast away our less than 2 year old model. Over and over again. Consciously or subconsciously, we are trapped in one large consumer society. So here's my version of a phone with five cameras.
