Storyboard

295.jpg
Stefhan Caddick's "Storyboard" will provide an opportunity for members of the public to post messages to a mobile Variable Message Sign using a mobile phone.

To post a message send a text to: 07929 461727. Messages are limited to 144 characters in length.

The intention for the project is to encourage members of the public to find a new use for these signs, which usually carry mundane but important traffic and road safety information. Instead the VMS will carry text messages, which by their nature are often deeply personal.

Stefhan Caddick is a visual artist based in Wales. His work is often multidisciplinary, encompassing visual art, new media and elements of performance." [via may you live in interesting times]
