If you ever do a series or talk on relationships, communication, social media addiction, or something along that line you should check out this site Have A Heart to Heart With Me. Heart 2 Heart is a project by Eric Slaktin where he asks users to submit conversation they are having with their phone. It’s amazingly truthful and revealing.
From the site…
Our phones have become a vital part of our lives: they tell us what our day looks like, allow us to send info all over the world, are a great diversion, and in some senses have allowed us a freedom (on a social and business level) that we’ve never had before.
Yet we don’t often think that they – themselves are the ones that have facilitated the changes. Though if you spent the amount of time with another person that you do with your phone, you’d inevitably be in a pretty committed relationship.
The hope of this project is that through the dialogue it facilitates, we’ll start to gain a better understanding of the effects of cell phones on our daily lives and will gain further insight into the unintentional relationships we’ve gained to a piece of electronics.
Here is a video submission that I think you will find useful, smart, and engaging.
