Soul Lines

Is technology making us move through life too fast? Is there still space for the spiritual in an increasingly technologised and known world? When were you last fully whole?

Soul Lines is based on the idea that the soul can only travel at (camel or human) walking pace and that moving faster results in your soul becoming dislocated from you. Soul Lines is a smartphone app (currently Android only) which will enable you to find out when you and your soul will be reunited, should you ever have to travel faster than walking and where it currently is. It can even alert you when it arrives.

The project is currently in development, collaborating with creative technologist David Chatting. Soul Lines Android version will launch in 2014. You can catch up with some development notes on my blog here.
