nexus 5 with smashed screen

Where and how is it used?

used daily for communication, distraction

What did you or someone else pay for it?

around £300

Why do you want to add it to the museum?

because i was traumatised when the screen got smashed. previously it had been kind of invisible, it could simply be used without thinking of it as an object, as is if it were plugged straight in to my brain. since the screen got smashed, i'm constantly reminded that there is a device between me and the internet. now i prefer it this way.
