RSS Compassion Feed

Love this project by the Design Interaction Team in Goldsmiths, London is so simple but followed months of ethnographic research. Those Poor Clare nuns aren’t allowed whizzy gadgets, only the basics of life. So they verge on being cut off from life, and thus, their prayers following a similar fate. This cross shaped device fits aesthetically into the world of the convent, but also distills the news into a stream of basic messages, on which to contemplate and connect (I presume). Maybe we could all do with a little action-based tweet reading?
