2:10 What's the last photo you took on your cell phone?
Ivan Cash is a San Francisco based interactive artist who likes to involve himself in projects that raise awareness about the role of technology in our lives. So he took to the streets of San Francisco and asked random people to show him the most recent photo on their cellphones. What he found is a clever snap shot of our lives. Weddings, a favourite pet, a fiery crash, and a much loved husband's grave. These are some of the photos people shared with Ivan Cash. He's made a film about what he found.
