A bit of background information

OneSixty Characters explores the concept of storytelling — a tradition of handing down stories from generation to generation. Text messaging was used to explore how people continue to make personal connections every day, but increasingly on a far wider scale. Mobile phones allow people to connect over any distance — across a street or between cities around the globe, instantaneously.

Electrofringe Festival exhibition
Referencing the past and other mobile storytelling gadgets, a selection of the messages were transferred to a 35mm slide and presented in individual vintage handheld slide viewers. Like the mobile phone, the slide viewer was once a portable device that allowed people to share stories (in this case as images) on an intimate and personal scale.

I look forward to your rhymes!
