Challenge 9: The Hartphones

by post_author

Our website: hartphone.squarespace.com

Hartphones embody several aspects of counterculture. Hartphones start off as a blank slate, leaving the consumer the option of which design they’d like to have on their headphones. This personalization emulates a DIY counterculture, giving the user control of how they choose to present themselves. Furthermore, the designs and art that we allow consumers to choose from are created by “nontraditional” artists. All of the designs and art are created by individuals who are homeless and haven’t been exposed to art in a professional manner. The art they produce is evocative and free from traditional artistic constructs. In addition, part of the proceeds goes towards ArtLifting, allowing homeless artists to continue making art and have access to resources.
