Keitai Phenomenon: A Conceptual Series

The "Keitai Phenomenon” Collection

Keitai literally means Mobile Phone in Japanese.

This Project is Meant to effect of Keitai/Mobile Phones on our relationships with other people. Often these things look like they help us stay in touch – but there a personal touch lost in the process?

Meeting up - A Keitai Tea Party
Video conferencing is rad – you guys won’t need to worry about people showing up late or not being able to make it, because it’s practically guarenteed they’ll be able to attend from anywhere around the globe. It’s almost good enough to replace face-to-face meetings right?

Getting to Know Others: Facebook is Knowledge
You want to ‘catch up’ your friend. Before you facebook and mobile phones you would probably met up or ask him out. With FACEBOOK, there’s no more need! Just check out his facebook page! Why bother with arranging and fulfilling meet-ups any more right?

Sharing Experience: So Real it's almost Edible?
We love to share our experiences. Like the good food we find. We used to share such ‘finds’ (at least for me) by buying some of it to share. With cameras in mobile phones, you can just snap a shot and send it digitally. It’s way faster and almost as good – why bother buying and sharing anymore right?
Except that you can’t exactly eat a photo can you?

Family Relationships - Wired Up Family
It’s said that technology helps draw the the family closer by helping them stay in touch…
