Cell Phone Stories: An Experiment in Mobile Narratives Inspired by LACMA

May 29, 2010–September 6, 2010

Commissioned by LACMA, Cell Phone Stories is conceived of by artist Steve Fagin. It uses mobile phone technology to circulate thought-provoking narrative works about the museum and its audience. Cell Phone Stories involves the voices and texts of artists, actors, and writers who take the participant on a journey through the museum highlighting and reinterpreting the experience in novel ways.

Featuring personalities as diverse as actor Rainn Wilson, artist Kianga Ford, writer Barry Yourgrau, and fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, Cell Phone Stories is designed to unfold entirely via mobile phone. Please text "LACMA" to 67553 to receive weekly text messages that will direct you to the various components of this project, which will include text stories, links to videos, graphics, and audio experiences.*
