SMARTPHONELESS IN THE POST DIGITAL AGE | PATRIK WINCENT | TEDXBERGEN
What would happen if suddenly you would wake up in the morning and everything would be gone? Your mobile phone, Ipads, computers. Lets say a natural disaster would wipe out internet, or a hacker would spread a global virus that would destroy our social media platforms. Would you go crazy, feel panic or empty. Maybe you would start climbing the walls, at least at the beginning. Could you imagine a life without technology, how would you perform work, how would you spend time with your children? How would you relate to your partner? How would you fill the hours that you earlier spend hours on your phone…. Patrik imagines you would have to deconstruct your life and how you perform your working hours, at home, with your partner and children.
