Technology is becoming more and more integrated into our lives. In the face of further development, we need to take a position on how we want it to shape our existence.

Research shows that screen use can lead to negative consequences such as mental illness, difficulty concentrating and antisocial behaviors. How can we approach technology in a more sustainable and constructive way?

In my thesis, I have investigated how digital media affects the user. I've wanted to question my own technology use to identify pros and cons as well as challenge my usually screen-based practice as a graphic designer. As a consequence, I stopped using the smartphone and computer for a month. I have compiled my reflections on the project in a book written, designed and manufactured without a computer.
