DTC / Dare To Communicate / Oslo 2014
We are “alone together” after all, using our cellphones in bars, restaurants, not even talking to each other any longer. More and more people suffer from this situation. Our research underlined the fact that people would like to communicate but don’t dare to do it. Too afraid to disturb important online conversations, afraid to be seen as “freaks”. A lonely guest in a restaurant is often seen as “weird”, misplaced. At the same time if you’re alone but bring a book, or your laptop, loneliness seems perfectly normal.
We decided to develop a set of tools to help people to indicate their wish and need to communicate. Simple devices such as bookmarks and pin-buttons, postcards and cards.
