Despite the current strong commercial trend towards wearable technology, the performance "Maintaining Relationships With Our Devices" considers the role that un-worn personal devices have played in most of our lives for over twenty years. This performance explores the distance we have had between our bodies and our devices and proposes that this distance has given us the space to form meaningful relationships with our devices. The relationship model of parent and child is used as an analogy for the relationship between the performer and their mobile device. This model of parent and child is used in order to propose the design of mobile device accessories that maintain and enhance this relationship. The performance also proposes a form of wearable technology that maintains relationships with mobile devices as we lose our distance to them as they migrate onto and into our bodies.
