A proposal for an interactive light and sound installation where passers-by can interact with an urban scale architectural sculpture using a normal mobile telephone to generate spatial sounds and, in the darker hours of the day, to manipulate a play of light and shadow.
Visitors and passers-by in possession of a regular mobile telephone can dial the telephone numbers displayed on the installation and link up with the computer system which controls the installation. After they have successfully logged in, visitors can push buttons on their phones to create sounds that are broadcast by loudspeakers into the street.
