This proposal combines mobile phone networks and subtle changes in the natural world, highlighting the effects of human presence on the environment. It proposes to raise questions about the origin and generation of localised source material and our perception of time and identity as we extend personal networks through communication technologies.
The piece proposes the formulation of a means by which discrete processes and movements may be individually accessed via mobile phones. This information may be received either as text and/or iconic image messages (which punctuate the day at random) or deliberately sought out through the 'Information' function. This information will refer to both the visible live events occurring locally (such as flocking birds) and those which are only perceivable with technology (such as minuscule seismic shifts and background radiation levels).
