There's no doubt that society's dependence on tech is having an impact on human relationships, and, rather than bring us together, it can often have the opposite effect.
With this in mind, filmmaker Marco Espirito Santo and collaborator Tomaz Castelão have teamed up on an innovative act of 'meaningful vandalism', ONLINE | OFFLIFE, in which they went out into the streets of Lisbon in the middle of the night and pasted up hundreds of posters bearing messages that directly question people's current relationship with technology.
Captured in a thought-provoking and pulse-quickening film, the audacity of the project and creative thought behind it mark it out as something of which to take notice.
