Hauptplatz/Mobile City - Opening
Cell phones and the future of mobile telecommunications will be the talk of the town on and around Linz’s Main Square during the 2006 Ars Electronica Festival. How Nokia & Co. have altered our society’s communications structures will be illustrated by diverse projects in provocative and humorous fashion. From the portable telephone booth to the treasure hunt via cell phone—the entire Linz inner city will provide settings for interactive projects in public spaces. The less pleasant aspects of technology’s dominance of everyday life won’t get short shrift either.
