Most people spend a large chuck of their lives in communication with others however we are more separate and disconnected then ever. Short details and insights into peoples lives are taken from Facebook or text, mostly on the run, but not from face to face conversation.
Mike & Meg is a campaign which aims to make people more aware of their use of technology in public spaces and encourages people to engage in face to face conversation. Mike and Meg will run in selected suburbs throughout Australia in conjunction with local councils and cafes or restaurants. Participants are invited to search for the Mike & Meg sticker, placed on cafe windows, to receive discounted items from the cafe and involve themselves in technology free zones. Non Mike & Meg stickers are also used to advertise the campaign and promote disconnection with technology in public through illustrations of people using technology who are unaware of their surroundings.
