Phone Camera is an audio visual piece realised at NOVARS, the University of Manchester, UK
in 2010. The visual material was primarily captured using a low-fidelity mobile phone camera.
The inherent quality of digital compression reveals the many artefacts on the intended image and were further transformed to alter the meaning of the intended message. The capacity for technological transmission to introduce 'noise' into both auditory and visual media is explored in varying degrees throughout Phone Camera. The sound material comprises of source recordings captured from a diverse selection of locations. For example, walking on snow, clashing of rocks, vocal
utterances, metallic impacts and various types of analog synthesized sounds. The way in which the visual material is presented forms narratives using mobile phone images meticulously edited alongside the music. Other images include, computer generated graphics, oil paintings and found film footage.
