Smartphone Symbiosis tackles how we interact with the data flows to which smartphones give us access. This research through design aims at imagining objects and interfaces, allowing a detachment from the smartphone or stimulating a more balanced and focused interaction with some of its functionalities in desired situations. It aims to offer proposals for re-appropriation or re-extraction of certain features locked in the smartphone.
