This project was comissioned by the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) Australia.
By the end of today, most of us will have checked our phones over 150 times; on the toilet, in the car, at the dinner table, even during sex. But, have we ever stopped to ask ourselves - is there a time and a place?
I documented the pervasive use of phones in private and public situations; I boarded trains at peak hour, followed drivers texting in cars on highways and was invited into a few living rooms. I spent extended periods just watching and photographing our overwhelming and omnipresent fixation with our phones. I created a cinematic style suite that was exhibit alongside a documentary release that highlighted the dangerous behaviour of drivers when distracted by mobile phones.
The documentary and exhibition garnered a huge media exposure and was featured nationally on TV, press and in current affairs programs.
