Cell Phone Symphony, an exhibit of student art from Graphic Design I, is currently on display on the 2nd floor of the PLC. The visual interpretations are colorful, varied, and thought-provoking. Here are some samples as well as an overview of the assignment followed by the names of the student artists.
In this project students were asked to:
- Create 4 posters from 2 number keys for “Cell Phone Symphony,” a performance by artist Golan Levin, featuring music composed via interaction among the audience’s cell phones. Create a random list of phone numbers (a dozen or so), which will be used to generate visual imagery for the poster,
- Devise a system for turning the phone numbers into visual form. For example, the digits 0-9 could each be assigned a color, size, typeface, character, or degree of transparency. The goal of each poster is to suggest auditory experience as well as ideas of social and technological interaction.
