Through a subtle use of augmented reality, Seven Grams shows everything you can't see and know about your smartphone, from your own phone. By disassembling its mechanisms, Karim Ben Khalifa tells us about the history of our smartphones and their human and ecological impacts.

By visually revealing the complexity of the political, economic and electronic processes behind the production of a smartphone, Seven Grams provides an urgent reflection on the use of natural resources in the electronics industry. Through a subtle use of augmented reality, the work invites the viewer to become aware of the choices she or he can make in the face of the injustices that result from the device in her or his hands.
