Abstract

TEXT ME - An interactive arts project exploring the multitude of stories archived in our phone memories Produced in partnership with the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art - Written, directed, produced and curated by XXXX - 2014 – 16 TEXT ME is a live and online platform which creates an evolving and living digital archive exploring the ways our lives are lived and captured via our mobile phones. In 2016, TEXT ME received 10K of funding from BALTIC.

During my time as visiting artist at BALTIC, I developed strategies for building both digital and local audience participation. I developed and hosted a series of workshops in Newcastle working with local secondary schools and BALTIC’s Artmix group. These workshops encouraged users to transform digital data from the past, into artworks in the present. TEXT ME launched at BALTIC on Valentine’s Day in 2016. Following a series of my workshops and master classes at BALTIC during 2015/2016, BALTIC hosted a six week exhibition (comprised of my own work and the best of the audience stories I had gathered during the year long workshop programme) TEXT ME opened on November 4th 2016 and was featured in the Arts and Culture section of The Journal.

Throughout the twelve month development period, I developed various platforms and tools in which our audience could collect, curate and share stories from their digital past.
