the hong kong agent MOBILE VERSION is an ongoing locative media art work. it is a series of short audio/visual episodes created for mobile devices. you can download the media clips below onto your mobile device for free. if you're in hong kong, go to the locations on the maps provided for a special experience:-) these mobile versions are part of the hong kong agent: installation version, exhibited at the hong kong arts centre throughout august 2008.
for the people of hong kong, space is a rare commodity; the handheld device has become an effective means for the individual to personalise almost any public space. The Hong Kong Agent mobile version plays with this phenomenon by presenting its own highly personalised content on ostensibly private hand-held devices in a public space for individual use. the novel context(s) and content of the installation allows the user to reflect on their use of personal and public space, technology, and on the nature of the place and time they inhabit.
