Inspiration: The first time I witnessed teenagers standing not more than 1 meter apart carry on a conversation using text messaging through their devices, I was wildly amused but then I started noticing younger people in particular, preferring to type their way through all kinds of scenarios rather than verbally communicate. I've therefore felt compelled to bring attention back to our original communication device, our mouth (and lips).
