A watch that tells you how much time you spend on facebook, twitter and email throughout the day. A full analogue watch that explores the actual trend of digital downtime, taking as a starting point that time is the new luxury. Raises questions whether social networks and email contribute to social isolation and leave us very little time for real interaction. Connects via wi-fi and 3g to the internet to get the information in real time.
The Digital Downtime watch is part of the exhibition SLOW TECH: Designs for Digital Downtime. Curated by Henrietta Thompson (editor at Wallpaper* and TANK) and hosted by Protein.
