The T Project

Dressed in our corporate businesswomen uniforms, Alexia Mellor (Mellor Management) and Sarah Banasiak (Esbee Enterprises), structured a 9-5 day performing a commute, riding as many lines of the T as possible.  Bringing along our trusted “laptops” (typewriters), we sent “instant messages” to each other (using screen names and IM lingo), which were relayed by fellow passengers passing the folded messages down to the other person typing.  Our goal was to attempt to highlight the interface between technology and communication and engage with fellow commuters. Where technology has endeavored to unite people through efficiency, we sought to invite interaction through the use of a nostalgic, out-dated technology.
