Experience Mobile Mobile

Experience Mobile Mobile from James Théophane Jnr on Vimeo.

"Work asked me to do something for their Christmas card. I work for an Interactive Agency.

To cut a long story short, after a company-wide upgrade the agency had a lot of old mobiles gathering dust. We took these, built and hoisted a gigantic interactive chandelier/mobile that plays Christmas jingles in our reception.

To add a little xmas spice to the mix, anyone can go online and enjoy annoying the hell out of people waiting around in the reception, by playing the thing live from their web browser:

Details on how we made it and some behind the scenes content are available on my blog:

Mobile Mobile has been made as a semi-permanent hanging (exhibition) space. In January the mobiles will be replaced with another hanging media, then updated month in, month out.

Mobile Mobile is just one in a line of many great lo-fi art/build concepts; from the Design Museum's Aquarium, Digital By Design, Troika and The Cloud, the Printer Bleeping Thingy (I can't remember who did it), all the great work by W+K, and of course, AKQA's wonderful microwaves from last Christmas.

Looking forward to many more to come.

Good Cause: One of the largest problems facing the developing world is a lack of trained physicians. MoCa, is a health screening system for developing countries using mobile (cell)phones and open source technologies. See"

  1. This is a pure instant of poetry, simple and pure as every deep creation is always. I like it so much I played the video several times to listent to i all again and watch the magic second when the first mobile enlights with the first drop of sound. I feel it is too short but at the same time this time quality also contributes to the feeling of mystery we experience with this creation.
    Congratulations !
