The Cocoon, or the Phone Removal Treatment

Alexandra Durand

Nomophobia is the anxiety felt when separated from our mobile device. Set in a speculative future, this project The Cocoon is meant to be a treatment for this condition. By knitting a physical cocoon for your mobile device, not only are you cutting yourself from it, but also enjoy the meditative craft of the process. Since it is not permanent and can be undone at any time, the project brings forth the idea of the Second Law of Thermodynamics: in a system in which no external forces act, disorder will increase.
