Inter-generational difference underpins Pause Connection as words have differing values and connotations as language evolves over time. When a Baby Boomer hears the word ‘pause’ it generates a sigh of relief as it is time to put your feet up. In contrast, the tech savvy Gen Y react to ‘pause button’ as downtime to gather refreshment so they can continue play on a console. Pause Connection is a whimsical representation of the divide between the Baby Boomer and Gen Y.
