Composed by technical and cultural activities, MOBILEFEST - International Festival of Mobile Art and Creativity in Sao Paulo, Brazil – includes an international seminar, qualification workshops, international exhibition and recognition awarding for the best mobile works and applications.
Different from other national and international festivals, MOBILEFEST was created for the mobile era and therefore, is the first festival that accepts submissions of texts, pictures and videos via SMS, MMS or WAP.

At the ‘Art in mobile’-show in Art Gallery Galerie de Meerse the project 15×15 is presented.

The project is developed by Richard Vickers, Oliver Dore, Greg Brant, the Hull School of Art & Design and the University of Lincoln.
You can become famous using your standard mobile camera phone and send video clips using MMS to +44 (0)79 68 57 30 84. Your clip will be shown for 15 seconds randomly on a screen together with 14 other clips (hence the name 15×15).
At the moment, Dallas Contemporary exhibits a project called realtime:08. And guess what? This show asks the question; ‘what kind of art do you make in 15 seconds on a mobile phone?’ The show is curated by Dean Terry and John Pomara. The artists participating are:
Sleepy Urbanite is a project of Yvonne Doll. She explains: “Sleepyurbanite.com is the freaky, love-child of my frustration with slogging away in day job land and my unwavering compulsion to make art. This is a holding place for thoughts and images that I collect from the people, places and things I encounter on my daily journey in sweet home urban-opolis, Chicago, Il.”
Besides being an artist, Yvonne Doll is also the lead singer of ‘The Locals‘.
The Australian Network for Art and Technology presents Portable Worlds 2nd Edition.
Touring nationally in 2008 and 2009, the works utilize mobile phones for both display and creation, exploring connection and intimacy, portability and community, scale and distance.

Everybody knows that a mobile phone nowadays is not just a device to be able to talk. With most of the cells you can make pictures, movies and ringtones. A lot of artists are inspired by that. They use mobile phones as main subjects for their projects, make art for phones or create art with their phones.
Art in Mobile, an initiative of the non-profit Art Gallery, Galerie De Meerse (10 minutes from Schiphol Airport, The Netherlands) wants to collect all this type of art on this website. Besides that, a special class program for teenagers will be developed, as well as workshops about how to use your phone as a tool to make art. In March and April, Galerie De Meerse will show the most remarkable pieces of art at her gallery.
If you have something for Art in Mobile, let us know at info [info #AT# artinmobile.com] and you might end up in the art gallery.

If you are not afraid of ‘art projects’ made as a marketing tool, check The World Is My Canvas and help Stavros to make some position art by using mobile phones. I guess preferably Nokia cells :).
The Dutch artist made a portable devices website. Take your cell to www.ericklarenbeek.com/mobile and download wallpapers, animations, screensavers, polyphonic or animal-realtones without any extra expenses.

Artones.net is a research commission for artists making mobile phone art. The organization started early on in 2002 as a series of questions. Would artists be interested in making ‘commercial’ content, namely, really small pieces of art that could be sold to mobile phone users? If so, would the commercial distribution aspect affect the type of work they created? Equally, would typical ringtone/logo consumers be interested in purchasing innovative, artist designed content? What sort of content would be most popular, and why?
