Installation made of smartphones, tablets and net, „wiping technique“

What is the smartphone or tablet doing, while we are wiping the display? May the complicated background calculation process eventually be more mundane than the „signs“ that are applied unperceived by wiping? As an artist, my fingers are leaving traces in earth, clay, and color. I have been curious about what traces and cryptic signs I leave by scrolling the display, resulting in two main traces (a horizontal and a bold vertical line) and dots at different places. An accidental product of sophisticated technology.What kind of unconscious acts do I perform several times a day, that create the sign of a cross on my smartphone?
