Mohr SMS

"“Mohr SMS” is an interactive installation by Hugo Camargo and Veronika Pauser in which the screen of a mobile phone is used as a canvas in order to produce generative art, allowing people to add graphical elements in real-time by sending text messages. The resulting images are based on Manfred Mohr’s early works (generative algorithm images), especially the program P18 (1969/1973). When the first SMS is received, its graphical representation appears on the screen. By receiving further text messages it builds up to the final image, which consists of ten text messages. The canvas then turns itself to the initial state again and another picture can be made." .
