Something called like iUlysses XR.
Above is a prototype we made in 1994 for DUTCH magazine in a series called Sleeping Beauty.


Following is a selection from the transcripts on my iPhone XR.

‘In Anotherland the West Zone has been documented frequently in the Last Field Trips. Many Pamphlets have been taken for research. It is rumoured that when the Blue Heaven changes into the Black Heaven the area becomes Desolate and not Safe. Groups of Bearded Men smoking and exchanging the Forbidden Herbs dance in large groups around the Flowering Trees. It was reported that one was screaming:  “Corona, Pamphlet, Corona Pamphlet! ‘

‘While stock lasts’
In 2014 I was hoarding as much Polaroid material as I could get. On Friday night around 6 PM, it was announced they would stop the production at any time. I called my photo equipment dealer Calumet in Amsterdam, but they were already closed. So I tried B&H in NY directly and bought as much 8×10 Polaroid material as I could get. The bill was about $ 25,000.
