Connect is a phone charging station that only starts to charge your phone if you speak. Connect was meant to be a reflective piece on the current state of communication in our society. While smartphones have connected people in ways we never thought possible, they have also become barriers for people to connect face-to-face. They have become a social crutch for many, making it hard to even leave its side while charging. Connect encourages people to put down their phones and have a vulnerable moment to reflect in-on themselves, while also creating a space for people to listen to strangers. Listening to strangers is important because it helps grow empathy and understanding.
