Abstract

A new kind of social space is created out of the transmission and reception of data between mobile phone users. A private communicational space arising from the city’s striated space, a social space born out of a new telecommunications technology. This virtual but real communicational space can be thought as a subversive space, a decentralised network where users generate and exchange their own data, taking pictures, making phone calls, accessing the Net. This paper is exploring the creation and appropriation of this space by its users and investigates broadcasting models where people are be able to send their text and other multi-media elements and display them onto designated local public screens.
