Anti-Social Network

The mobile phone has changed rapidly in technological advancements over the last 40 years allowing the user to access the rest of the world through communication. With this small device the user is able to telephone, text, email and with the ability to access the internet – social network. But how social is this form of communication and to what effect has the mobile phone had on our consumer led society?

 Anti-Social Network addresses the sense of isolation and lack of empathy observed in others by their use of the mobile phone and the ubiquitous transformation of their engagement with the world around them.

 With the emergence of Nomophobia in recent years, Anti-Social Network raises questions about how intrusive and obsessive mobile phones have become and how this embedded epidemic-like influence is affecting the nature of society itself.
