I'm wondering how to see what my device is capturing
about my surroundings and behaviours, once I
realized that my smartband does a miscount of
steps, when I'm sitting or standing but using several
items of my house, since our present confinement.
I'm taking advantage of the 3D scanning apps and
biometric sensors incorporated on the devices I carry
to recreate my reality from my phone's point of view,
and placing this virtual composition within an Instagram
account.

This project is being uploaded at:

Alien objects float on an Instagram account. Scanned with a precarious machine,
which makes them 3D in the best possible way. With the few resources
it has, the machine tries to do its job. Small inexpensive machine. Distorted
shapes, with rough edges, with disfiguring lines.

Objects are everyday objects, even if they don't seem like it. They have a
house and they have an owner. They have an owner who does not leave his
house and even though he does not move, he still wears a step counting bracelet.
Little machine that no longer has to count and still tries to count. Miscounted.
The machine counts steps that no longer exist, steps that are just
short movements of its owner at home. The machine looks for ways to keep
generating data.

What routes? How much space can be created with each
miscounted step of my devices?

Terraforming?
This says Wikipedia:
Terraformation: As a proper term that describes processes
aimed at the intervention of a planet, natural satellite
or other celestial body to recreate in it the optimal conditions
for terrestrial life, namely, an adequate atmosphere
and temperature, and the presence of liquid water . This
is the original use of the term.

DATAFORMATION: 
Machines capable of virtually reconstructing
the essential conditions to make (project) the
world/language. Are those worlds human trace? Maybe
human-based projections?

This project is being uploaded and executed as several pieces of Augmented Reality,
so the user can make them effective with his/her intervention
