// Technology was supposed to bring us together. Instead, it has been tearing us apart.

// Human relationships are increasingly being replaced with virtual ones.

This grassroots project questions this trend, in the the hope that we reconnect again.

In an act of meaningful vandalism, we went out into the streets of Lisbon in the middle of the night and pasted up hundreds of posters bearing messages that directly question our current relationship with technology, what some leading minds have described as the great addiction of the 21st-Century.

The aim was to make people compare their real lives to their virtual ones, sparking healthy debate on the subject and leading people to see that their addiction to technology (mobile tech in particular) is preventing them from living their lives to the fullest: rich in human connection, and in the moment.

We took action on public spaces, with homemade organic wheat paste and thoughtful consideration throughout the whole movement – trying our best to keep this a victimless crime.
