SENT wants to be the first major exhibit of phonecam art in the United States. The website for the event explains that it will explore the camera phone's potential as a creative tool in two ways: through an online public dialogue in which amateur photographers and phonecam users around the world share mobile snapshots of their lives; and through an invitational exhibit in which professional photographers, artists, and public figures test the limits of creative possibilities offered by these hybrid devices.
During a specific period of time leading up to SENT, and while the in-gallery exhibit is under way, images will be submitted by the public and published through an online, massively collaborative phonecam blog. A grid of multiple plasma screens in the sixspace gallery will display these images in a constantly refreshing display (refresh rate for each screen will be staggered so that only one image changes at a time).
