Text your favourite nursery rhyme or childhood song!
Would you like to be part of an exhibition that explores the
connections we make on an intimate, but global scale?
160 Characters is an exhibition of children’s nursery rhymes and songs
from around the globe. This exhibition will present fragments of
childhood memories from many different cultures.
To become part of the exhibition simply visit www.onesixty.net,
complete the online form and send your rhyme or song via text message
to the mobile number on the website. You can choose to send just one
line of the song or use up to three text messages to transmit more.
Also feel free to use contemporary text messaging abbreviations.
The messages will be collated and presented as part of a multimedia
installation and eventually on the internet.
Twenty texts will be selected for presentation in individual retro
slide viewers as part of the installation.
This work explores the technological connections between us, via the
use of shared memories of childhood nursery games and songs.
Visit www.onesixty.net for more information.
Text messaging in your own original language is encouraged.
