My Phone Is Off For You- 06.22.10
Unpacking suitcases just rediscovered this sticker in a pile of business cards! And it reminded me i was meaning to post this awesome project i ran into at ICFF from Parson’s New Schooler, Ingrid Zweifel of The Way We See The World. I have an ex who was never without his phone, and constantly looking things up ~ sure it’s useful like a real life wikipedia midconversation during dinner sometimes… but sometimes it’s just annoying! And likewise, i’m sure i’m guilty of peeking at my phone if it feel it buzz in my purse beside me too… it’s hard! So as a social intervention ~ perhaps we all need some of the tools from her My Phone Is Off For You project - “We may be sitting at the same table, but we are not together: a common condition of our over-wired world. It is time to question what truly nurtures the human spirit. MY PHONE IS OFF FOR YOU is a revolution; a series of tools designed to help engage in the present moment and spread this idea!” The tools? Awesome cell phone signal blocking handkerchief… sticker! rubber stamp! and i suppose the website is a tool too… to get you to take action! See shots from ICFF as well as closeups of the project on the next page!
