With an ever growing world of technology designed to distract us, it is easier than ever to lose sight of the things that matter most.
Do the forests miss our attention?
I strongly believe that if technology has the power to distract us, we can also use that power in the opposite way. We can design technology to help us be more grounded in the here and now.
From this notion I created the mobile app Isopodcast. Isopodcast is an interactive experience about the importance of attentiveness. With the app on your phone you’ll wander through nature and be guided to attentively experience your surroundings. You will experience how fulfilling paying attention is and be shown that we still are rooted in nature.
Isopodcast is about 30 minutes long and can be experienced anywhere in nature by anyone with an Android phone.
Please note that Isopodcast is only available in dutch for now.
