The multi-channel iPortrait video installation brings the viewers attention to the startling amount of time spent online by the 49 million commuters who daily populate the New York, Shanghai, London, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo subways. You can argue that there is not much else to do on these long underground journeys that photographer Jacqueline Hassink documented with her iPhone. But seeing the mirroring effect of such extensive disconnectedness from real life magnified and in your face does conjure up some unease of our daily digital consumption.
