Sms-chat sculpture

Do you think the spy sms mirror is weird? Well, here’s another intriguing concept… presenting the sms-chat sculpture. Matthias Haase has presented a project using a special version of the SMS Chatwall event software. It was his project for this year's diploma exhibition of the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden (Dresden's High School of art). Right! Here it goes! This art guy installed a GSM-module, a computer and beamer equipment on a table with a projection screen, calling the installation "Bote" (messenger). Exhibition visitors can send short messages to the number shown on the screen. The sculpture replies with an artist's "thank you" SMS, mentioning the art exhibition at the HfBK 2005. If you actually want to take part you can send an SMS to +4915204912748. I'll be very surprised if you'll tell me someone did reply to your sms...
