Rebellious Devices

This is the site for the project REBELLIOUS DEVICES by Graham Booth & Jonas Hummel.

What happens when two players take control of devices normally found in your back pocket or on your kitchen table?
Rebellious Devices is a new project which aims to explore this question using a network of portable devices found in Chinese everyday life. Expect to get up close and personal as the duo
manipulate both the devices and the invisible connections between them. Listen as digital chirps solidify into tones and tones fragment into rhythms in a continuous cycle of musical negotiation.

Who finally gains control, the players or the devices themselves?
