The addiction and compulsive use of mobile phones is changing the way we relate to each other and enjoy free time. On the other hand, leisure is increasingly programmed and directed towards consumption, also compulsive and excessive.

That is why I have decided to make a video that reflects and invites you to reflect on consumption and scheduled leisure.

What did my grandmother do in her free time?

As my grandmother reflects on her childhood and consumption, I feel nostalgia for a time I have not lived.

I think it is time to propose new forms of leisure that are not connected to consumption. I believe that cities must be transformed into spaces where free time can be better used, lived. In any case, it is incredibly difficult to fight against addictions that the state and companies promote. That is why it is up to us to make ourselves aware of this, in the first place, and then transform it.
