I featured Amanda Ames’ phone last year when she graduated from Central Saint Martins. She has now made a short film to highlight the problem that the phone ‘A Light Conversation’ is addressing. We’re socialising with one click rather than interacting in a more authentic way.
My argument that face to face meeting should be encouraged rather than phone conversation still stands. How about a Filofax which lights up when you haven’t made any dates to see your friends recently? Maybe that could work as an app on a digital diary, on your smart phone…? It’s not as charming as something physical and non-digital which lights up though.
Watch the video and decide what you think about the problem.
