Talking Windows

While the majority of the world can enjoy the benefits of technology while staying home, the underprivileged and most vulnerable lack the resources to join in.

Using windows and ordinary objects, we created a poster series of visual language that unifies neighbors in simple moments of human kindness.

Showcase your party spirit

Have fun

You can still have fun from a distance. Decorate your windows with objects in your house to let others know you are ready for some social interaction…at a distance of course.

Hang something red

Raise alarm

We know home isn’t always safe for everyone. If you are in a scary home situation and unable to call for help, hang something red from your window so others can call for you.
