MBD have been working incredibly hard that we've not actually announced the very exciting news that we'll be presenting a new show at PAZZ Festival in Oldenburgh, Germany from the 20th - 29th April.Below is a bit of copy all about it...
At the end of 2011, there were an estimated 6 billion mobile subscriptions. That is equivalent to 87 percent of the world population.
Stacked in shipping containers, every phone starts empty, no contacts, no messages. But the moment your phone becomes active it starts to store your memories on its memory. You choose your ring tone, your screen saver, your address book grows, your photos are stored and the life of your phone becomes a reflection of your own. Soon it becomes your link to the world, a place where you hear and read about moments both mundane and momentous.
As part of PAZZ 2012, metro-boulot-dodo delve deeper into a generation's addiction to instant communication. In an age where texts, tweets, pokes, wall posts or (occasionally) a good old fashioned phone call have become an integral part of our everyday lives, MBD asks the question: Is it really life or death?
