Urban Journal (2007)

"Urban_Journal” is a location sensitive mobile media art piece that facilitates interaction and exchange between people. New media technologies, such as the mobile phone, overlay older forms of communication to constitute a new type of urban space in the form of a social communication matrix. The sending of text messages (SMS) via mobile phones has become a ubiquitous component of such communication practices, enabling every inhabitant with access to a phone to take part in the “Urban Journal” by recording their daily impressions and forwarding them via their mobile phone. This phenomena creates a shared cultural platform and through its global media dissemination this leads to the local region entering a global city dialogue.
