For this release esc.rec
. teamed up with MobileVideoNet, an artist initiative that focuses on the possibilities of art, mass media and public distribution. It operates at the frontier of mobile phone art productions and alternative public distribution. In a joined effort we created the first interactive audiovisual release for mobile phones ever!
The works respond to changes in battery level, signal strength and time, which effects both audio and image.
Your mobile phone has to support Flash Lite content for this to work. If you don’t know, go to the your phone manufacturer’s website to find out.

Description: An interactive clock. Minutes and hours are represented in sound and image. Depending on time, line patterns overlap and form a moiré-effect.
