INPHONE is my concept within the art project (RE) CLAMED ARTSPACE (2022/2023) :
This dubious Phone company is a fictional company that seeks the limits of privacy, algorithms and age restriction. The means seduction, the goal total access to your desires and thoughts.
Please read why I brought this fictional company to life at the bottom of this page. Read about the how and why of the entire project here.
Reality check: 31-01 2024 – Elon Musk launches Brain Chip, now for medical purposes but intending to apply it on a commercial basis – The INPHONE turns out to be future thinking avant la lettré after all.

FREE AND UNLIMITED ACCESS FOR UNLIMITED ACCESS TO YOU.
A revolution in telecommunications and big data technology. INPHONE is a startup that was recently awarded a kickstart fund by I.G.C. Industries. This fund is awarded to companies that make exceptional innovative contributions to society. The INPHONE is the digital revolution of the future. It is free and accessible to everyone. It is a compact and subtle mica face jewel that gives you unlimited access to the world wide web.
HOW IT WORKS. The android skin-specific silicone body with organic battery connected to the external ear device is implanted invisibly at the ear under theskin and is in direct connection with the acrylic lens. The silicone body is no larger than 1mm thick with a diameter of 9mm. The acrylic lens is hyperallergenic and fits almost any eye. Therefore, lens eyes can be made operationally fit. The acrylic lens is a high res. display with additional augmented reality applications as a multimedia 180° camera and has ultimate wearing comfort. The lens can also be worn over a contact lens or even made fit as a contact lens at no cost. Want to know more about this? Inquire with the optometrist specialist at INPHONE.
THE LENS is a distinctive Instagram-able, Snapchat-able, Tik-Tok-able and vlog-able feature with different light experiences. The user can always adjust the light to any occasion. This is what you want! We distinguish the following light-ambiences: nightclub, private, love, generick, festival, nightout, bachelor, bachelorparty, wining an dining, selfie, besties, courting, corporate and conversational and many more. We additionally distinguish the following emotion ambiences: happy, sad, furious, sexy, funky, cheeky, flirty, persistent, yes, no, controversial and more. Note: There is also an X rated emotion and ambient Eye box for ages 12 and up. For that, check out the additional 12+ box and discover all the options. Under 12, unfortunately we need permission from both parents.
ALWAYS TUNED IN. The amazing aspect of this phone is that you will never again be deprived of the Internet, your favorite platforms, chat rooms and your friends. In fact, you are always on 24/7. If you don’t want to receive calls or a digi-detox, sign up 24 hours in advance at the main office of INPHONE and we will lock you out for an agreed period of never more than a week. The on mode will turn itself back on after 7 days without notice. A reassuring thought.
FOR FREE & NO COST. The most startling thing about this device is that it won’t cost you anything. It’s free, which is truly revolutionary!!! Data, next to crypto, is the currency of the future. So your data is worth money. By getting unlimited access to your data, the INPHONE company can invest in even newer technology and keep developing for your convenience. You will always be up to date! Your convenience, your convenience is key to us. You get unlimited internet and can make free calls all over the world. Using the ROM brain-link, by thinking of a person, you can also connect instantly. Even ordering food can be done with the Rom Brain-link. How this works is explained in one of our special guidelines. These are supplied for free along with the implant and can be consulted at any time.
HAPPILY IN YOUR PRIVATE BUBBLE. If you don’t want to get depressed by unpleasant news or if you don’t buy mainstream media, mark your favorite sites, platforms, influencers and topics, state where you stand and what you believe and we’ll filter out all the unpleasant news for you. Your world will always feel pleasant and nice. Not another day of depression with the My-Bubble app. My-Bubble-app ++ Get educated with the My-Bubble- app ++. This is the Plus mode where you can still take in learning easily and without deep focus. For lower IQs, there is a custom development app. Learning and growing has never been easier. Please also consult the special guidelines.
MARIT OVER INPHONE ‘She still owns a Nokia but somehow she manage to survive’. The concept for [RE]CLAMED ARTSPACE had been waiting on my digital desktop for several years until the time was right to act on it. My fictitious company INPHONE was simultaneously maturing along with it. The Idea was already born, I just needed to visualize it. During the rise of the smartphone, I had a Nokia, despite the fact that I thought it was a fine choice myself, it was constantly being discussed. Did I not fear lagging behind, missing out on something? Since then, my Nokia has been a statement in itself, a piece de resistance! In essence we talk about useful tools but in reality it has become an extension of our identity. We are metaphorically en masse on a social-commercial intravenous drip that has only one interest; to keep us on that drip. In that respect, we are becoming less and less independent. Important human values and qualities such as privacy, focus, concentration, peace of mind, attention, originality and individuality are gradually being placed under pressure. This is not even primarily due to the Internet, the smartphone or the associated apps and platforms, it is mainly due to the submission with which we have surrendered ourselves to it. I sometimes wonder, is this really progress or do we wish to believe it. I experience this, besides all its positive features, as a totalitarian commercial system. I just want to visualize that.
