For my final semester in college, I explored the idea of human interactions. The objective of Talkfeast was to show viewers the problem of cellphone consumption which is taking away from verbal communication. I hosted and recorded a dinner of four participants that were restricted to only communicating via Twitter or Instagram by tagging @talkfeast. The interactive installation was displayed at ArtSpace in Willimantic, CT which opened on April 18th, 2014.
I realized I couldn't just show the problem, rather, I had to solve at least part of it. My solution? Phone coasters that had witty reminders on them about putting the phone down while at the table.
