ZU-UK presents RioFoneHack – Interactive Digital Artwork for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

RioFoneHack | Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park | 20 June – 12 July

Three of Brazil’s iconic public phone boxes have been hacked by ZU-UK and re-installed in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park!

Audiences of one person at a time are invited to pick up the phones and enjoy a unique, interactive digital artwork experience…

The experience starts when you text ‘rio’ to the FREE phone number 07903 579 560 – you’ll be invited to the Park to begin your own, individual adventure. Or, for the curious passerby, it begins when they just happen to pick up the phone…

RioFoneHackWe don’t want to give too much away, but prepare to undergo a Brazilification, a meditation on the flow of River Lea’s waters, and/or a research in memory – or maybe all three! And this promises to be a surprisingly interactive experience – you’ll be able to get involved using the telephone keypads and sensors detecting pulse, motion and voice…

ZU-UK has created this unique interactive artwork with writers Holly Gramazio (of former Hideandseek), Clare Qualmann, Heather Uprichard (founding member of Shunt) and  Andy Field (Edinburgh’s Forest Fringe), and digital artists Nacho Durán and Xurde Durán.

Don’t miss out! Begin your experience now – text ‘rio’ to the FREE phone number 07903 579 560!
