The art gallery in your pocket

The art gallery in your pocket
Humans Invent reports on Phone Arts, an international collaborative project experimenting using only the mobile phone as the medium to create unique compositions. I think they are creating some interesting work, Phil Barker of Humans Invent is not so convinced:

The results are inevitably varied – with some pieces of artwork looking like they belong in a modern art gallery, and others looking more like a doodle in Microsoft Paint. Unfortunately, despite the promising premise, one recurring theme from the Phone Art contributions is a lack of overall detail in most of the pieces – a lot of the creations are based on colours or movement, highlighting the limitations of a relatively small screen and finger-based input. Some of the pieces do show a lot more evidence of thought and imagination, however, with a surprising amount of depth and detail.
