In the early months of 2021, I collected anonymous secrets on a burner flip phone from the people of Dublin. I designed and advertised the service of secret collection through outdoor posters and stickers. It led me on an unforgetable journey looking into the hearts of our community.

I look at the past, present and future of the burner phone as an object in this documentation of the project. The phone became much more than a phone in the process.

The past is documented in the booklet explaining the process, the present in the perspex-cased burner phone exhibit, and the future in the ‘phone-for-sale’ riso-graph printed posters.
