Situationist is an iPhone app that makes your everyday life more thrilling and unpredictable. It alerts members to each other’s proximity and gets them to interact in random « situations ». These situations vary from the friendly « Hug me for 5 seconds exactly » or « Compliment me on my haircut », to the subversive eg « Help me rouse everyone around us into revolutionary fervour and storm the nearest TV station ». Members simply upload their photo and pick the situations they want to happen to them from a shortlist, in the knowledge that they might then occur anywhere, and at any time.
