ProjectRe-Mobiling, breaking apart time and technology

Re-Mobiling, breaking apart time and technology

Re-Mobiling was a project in the Mobile Life Vinnova Excellence centre which explored current behaviours and aesthetics around mobile  phones and mobile services. Currently mobile phones are monolithic devices where all functions are stuffed into a single package. Furthermore, they have become a centralized and persistent log of certain aspects of users' lives, through e.g. call and sms logs. The re-mobiling project aimed to challenge the design of such core features, but also mobile phones themselves, based on findings from a study performed in Vanuatu, an island culture where mobile technology was recently introduced, as well as previous design explorations performed within the Centre.
