Locative media - phone

without comments

Although most modern telephones have GPS installed - this project takes things a little differently. An old rotary phone is connected using the phonebox to a GPS antenna. Stories are being recorded and stored with location data in the device. When the device re-visits the location, it will give a phone call using the earlier stored message. See the phone in action on the ‘kunstfietstaxi’ in the following clip:

The electronic system has been used in a stand-alone ‘voicemail-box’ and in this GPS-enabled taxi phone. The voicemail box (’phonebox’) is on display at the ‘MultiSolo’ exhibit. More links on the taxi are the following: ‘kunstfietstaxi’. - see also youtube or this clip and TVenschede.
