Somebody I Used to Know is a 20 min, one-on-one experience exploring friendship through the digital age. A personal and interactive experience exploring technology’s influence on how we connect with the people we care about. A chance to remember those we have almost forgotten.
Thoughtful...open-hearted. Small can be very beautiful
The experience was beautiful, clever, funny and unexpectedly moving.

Asks how much we can ever really understand another person and tests the links we forge between one another
