I see more and more people pushing Human contact away. Maybe technology has made us cynical or paranoid in a way. Most of us have developed a certain level of objectophilia, don’t we all just love our iPhone?

We need that human touch, the contact which reassures us of a the flickering hope of life, the lie which is sweeter than any truth foretold… That moment, that contact and that human need inside us will always make it more and more important for us to be close to people…
