15 Nokia N8s make up a Mobile Muster
Here's something interesting - and it features 15 Nokia N8s, would you believe... Artist Paul Sattress has assembled the discarded Symbian flagships from 2010 into an art installation, video shown below, part of the 'Mobile Muster' trade display, to be shown off on August 10th 2016.
I help those who help me be a public artist, and that is why this piece will appear at a trade show in the Mobile Muster stand. I was interviewed last year for Mobile Muster during National Recycling week. This interview describes how I display and why. You can read it at http://exchange.telstra.com.au/2015/11/10/the-art-of-the-mobile-phone/ This Telstra blog post focused on another phone piece called 'The Waifs', by the way.
The video below is Paul's latest creation, months in the making, with special circuitry installed inside each N8 to allow the display to be driven in this way. Impressive, eh? Even if it's not really anything to do with Symbian....(!)
