Mobile Mobile – 50 Windows Mobile HTC Touch phones playing Merry Christmas

I must say as an ex HTC Touch owner I find this installation particularly touching.

James Theopane was assigned to task to do something interesting with 50 HTC Touch phones that had become obsolete after an upgrade.  He created ‘Mobile Mobile’, a six metre circumference interactive sculpture, and signature piece for the entrance of the Brick Lane studio.

Each phone is individually addressed by a computer to cofunction and create a choral arrangement.  Assigning each phone a tone, the mass is transformed into an aural form that appears to come alive, shimmering and flirting for onlookers.

The conglomerate is available to control over the internet by anyone by visiting xmas.lbi.co.uk

You can also send a Tweet or visit the installation and play it in person.
