Digital Detox: Slow art with London Digital Detoxing

Digital Detoxing London: Slow Art

Guest blog from Martin Talks, founder of Digital Detoxing

Digital communications have no doubt enabled some amazing innovations in the workplace. We live in a time of instant communications where you can reach people and be reached instantly, all the time, wherever and whenever, at any time of day: evenings, weekends, holidays…. On the one hand this sounds great for productivity, but in reality how productive are we if we are constantly interrupted and when there is no down-time? Like many great advances in society, there are upsides and downsides. In this Meetup we focused on ways in which we can maximise the productivity, health and happiness of work.

The weather has been great recently, so we are going to be heading out to some green space for this month’s Digital Detoxing meetup. We are going to explore some ‘slow art’: the idea that if you really want to capture a moment, immerse yourself in a place, record your response to it, and be mindful in it, then drawing is a great way. The process of sitting, observing and perceiving. It’s amazing what we see when we take the time. And it’s amazing what different things we see too. Everyone brings their own perspective.

We’ll meet at the Hub Islington and go from there. I look forward to seeing you.
