leave your phone at home for 5 hours and do something else

My smartphone is incredibly useful, but recently I find that I can't stop staring at it. I even find it hard to concentrate on other things for long periods of time without checking my phone to see if anyone had contacted me, or liked something. So I thought it would be fun for a day to not have my phone, to get lost, try a restaurant that might have bad reviews, have no idea what time it is, and to experience something without having a camera attached to my body. Humans have lived without cellphones for thousands of years, I think I can survive 5 hours. I would love if you would join me on September 21.

A new No Phone Day is happening as part of an upcoming exhibition at the University of Notre Dame, Too Bad We’re Not Capitalists, August 27 - September 26. Email me your address if you want a postcard
