Compass Phone

Abstract:
The Compass Phone is about the issue of whether the mobile phone is a surveillance tool or a digital leash and it has focused on turning this issue into a source for creating an alternative means of communication which delivers a more poetic experience. The Compass Phone measures the distance between two people in real-time, and then converts it to the time it takes for them to meet each other by either transport or time unit.
