Kingston hackSpace

Project Designed by the T.r. Bennett, Graphic Design BA

Digital communication has been a double-edged sword. We now have faster typing speeds, but “um”s and “ah”s are more prevalent in speech than ever before. Have we become too dependant on the extra time the “send” button provides us?

Using Caseboard, you can type messages, but there is no backspace. If you wait too long between words, stalling phrases are added. This interface asks users to reflect on their own speech patterns. Do your online and offline selves... uh... talk in different tones? Do you feel at ease when a keyboard... like... doesn’t wait for you?
