Experiments in "Analog"
What we've left behind
After a slightly longer than intended unplanned break, we are back with a quick chat on our continual and mildly obsessive fascination with the intersection between habits and technology.
What is it to be a functioning Modern Adult who has to figure out the tools to achieve and cope with everything that means?
Why do we feel such a nostalgic pull for the past and how we used to do things?
Is it the tools themselves that were somehow better than we remember?
Did we leave some things behind that we shouldn’t have?
From this barrage of questions, an experiment emerged. We would try to wind the clock back a decade, with less iPad + Apple Pencil and more Paper and Pen, less streaming, more mp3’s, less computational photography, and more digital photography. So not quite exclusively analog but a little less 2020s.
So have a listen and find out how our little experiment went and tell us what would your own experiment in “analog” be like.
