Sometimes it's easy to feel disconnected from people. Even as technology seems to make it easier to stay in touch, it sometimes feels like our interactions with friends and family are a little hollow, a little too casual. More so than that, however, sometimes we simply forget to see other people — really see them — as we go through our days wrapped up in thoughts and anxieties generated by the urgency generated by our omnipresent smartphones. As a result, we can forget that we are social animals and that our need to be seen and acknowledged cannot always be met over a screen. The Liberators' experiment — which is ongoing — takes a look at what can happen when people make a conscious decision to slow down and simply see those around them.
