An electromagnetic experience

Picture%209.png"Cell Phone Disco is a playful experimental installation made out of flashing cells. By multiplication of a mobile phone gadget, only slightly altered consumer product, we created a space to experience the invisible body of the mobile phone."

I'm always up for playful experiments... The experiment consists of both a Mobile Aura and Mobile Drawing that are activated via interaction of an electromagnetic source. Sensitive cells follow the area of a user socializing while less sensitive cells react directly to the proximity of the device.

While more involved, I think it would be interesting to develop a way to allow the translated path of the LEDs to reflect back on the mobile phone. Essentially making a real-time visual loop of what is happening outside the phone, on the phone.

Below is a rough video of the installation.
