Living in the post-modern era, I sometimes feel myself disconnected from the world in so many aspects. But it's a disconnection by being connected. Confusing, isn't it? We learned to put limits for everything, our time is never enough, we rarely try to express our feelings and we almost never try to understand others , we caged our lives in our smart phones. The reality seems to bother us so much that we are continuously replacing it with the ideal one , the desirable reality , the one who satisfies our followers but leaves us empty when we lock the phones.
From time to time , we need something to shackle us from the routine and to make us feel the real connection that is slowly vanishing among people . What's better than the EYE CONTACT EXPERIMENT ?
Eye contact is way more intimate than words will ever be!
Eye Contact Experiment is being held in many countries worldwide and its main focus lies in the idea of a real human connection in public. For one minute , you will stand face to face with a complete stranger...a child , a women , a men , it doesen't matter . During that minute , enjoy what you see in the other person's eyes and try to find that missing piece of human connection . No words are needed , just that peaceful eye contact between two people that in the surface may have nothing similar with each other but underneath that they are all the same.
Take a moment to appreciate life and create a space of true connection with those people you see everyday walking down the streets but whom you never really notice.
Let your eyes show the world that you care !
P.s.: The experiment will take place in Tirana on Sunday,at Skanderbeg Square from 11 AM- 2 PM.
