✺ “5 TOOLS FOR DIGITAL DETOX”
“5 Tools for Digital Detox” seeks for reflection on the only addiction that has been socially accepted, the digital. In response, five objects and phases have been designed to boost and promote digital detox. Each phase creates a new scenario that rethinks our relationship with technology. The goal is to create a series of objects that invite us to reflect, reconsider and build, through critical design, a digitally responsible society.

Steganos is a speculative design project where culture is prohibited by the Central Statement to obtain control of this civilization. Stegano’s main goal is to distribute the culture and knowledge through hidden media. This society are the owners of the last book on earth, where there is all the existing cultural content in the world. To undersand it, it is necesary to obtain passwords and links that would allow you to decipher it. A new alphabet, apparently illegible, was designed for the book. Visit: WWW.57364N05.NET

The only architecture that has remained of ancient civilitzation is the funeray. Has it been eternal? Can we consider funerary architecture everlasting? In order to answer these questions Dédalo explores the dualism between the eternity of funerary architecture and the fugacity of life.

✺ Digital detox guide
Access to the network has not been the pursuit of greater illumination, broader horizons, knowledge of conceptions and lifestyles that had not been known so far. This pocket guide seeks to provoce debate, raise awareness and offer a digital detox solution. It collects spaces in Barcelona that promote digital detox in order to look for resolutive tools that can present a contemporary society. The guide has the same dimensions as a smartphone.
