Sent: Phonecam Art Project Launches

Xeni over at BoingBoing is co-curating an online “art” project called Sent. The project aims to “test the limits of creative possibilities” of phonecam moblogging. Celebrity “artists” are contributing, but nobody you’re likely to be impressed by. Unfortunately there seems to be no difference between the project and any other foto moblog. There’s not even an interactive ranking system or anything to let you see the best of the “amateur” contributions — just random flotsam from the sea of bad photography.

We love you Xeni, and we’re all for the idea of moblogging, but at some point you need to ask yourself if this project is a tad over-hyped. I would think that a red flag would’ve been raised as soon as you saw the phrase “Phonecams are changing the way we see the world, and our place within it” on the website? And can you really be deconstructivist if you’re sponsored by Motorola?

If you want to participate, you can send your pics to from your cell or PC.
