The Spacecraft Diaries is a lifelog filmed by a smartphone camera. I serve the camera; I devote myself to the camera. Doing this means, on very rare occasions, I encounter something I knew nothing about, something beyond the imagination. The power relationship between the subject filmed and myself is then reversed, and what appears in the film is my own self, updated by the “other” which is the camera. This film then becomes a documentary of myself, filmed from the perspective of a smartphone camera, continuously updated by an “other”.
