ARTING

(2004-2007)

 

Art by (clockwise): Stefan Lindfors, William Wegman and Louise Bourgeois

 

‘Arting’ project provided users with artistic content in limited editions from renowned artists like Nam June Paik, Louise Bourgeois and William Wegman.

Users gathered unique collections of art to be enjoyed on the go. ‘Arting’ was a pioneering project using the cellphone as an artistic medium.

 

Those invited for this project were visual artists, filmmakers, video artists, painters, poets, sculptors, musicians, directors, composers and installation artists. The pieces were typically 30 second long mobile videos.

Screenshots of artworks were used as screensavers.

 

The phones with art were also presented in several museums in the US, Italy, China and Singapore.
