“all familiar, all foreign: You are in an infinite background, at a place with no date. Your phone is unable to get the satellite signals; already lost its function.

You find yourself getting emotional about digital tools. This is an archeological site of the future. Here, you are constructing the future.”

Go back home,” they say.

My work is dirty,
My wage is low.
