The impact that smartphones have on our lives in enormous. Internet access has become more democratic, and in 2022 almost 85% of the population owns a smartphone. In this short period of time, the easy and constant access to this technology has been changing the way we experience space and time, and our behaviour as humanity. Today our phones have become an expansion of our minds, and our project aims to express and explore this reality, recognising that the Digital and the Physical are both real life, and we can navigate between them using our attention.
We developed an operational system that supports the phone as part of ourselves, presenting the boundaries and connections between the Physical and the Digital. Since the phone is the gate between the digital and the physical we created a seamless experience to the user, taking them trough the flow of his day and his presence in both worlds. We also designed Expansion of the Mind to present the philosophical ideas behind AtOS. The book was collaborated with others to present original content explaining our conclusions in both text and visual ways.
