You Must Relax (Eve Arpo & Riin Rõõs) (ee)
A Day Without the Mobile Phone

Light and Sound Installation, 2007

A Day Without the Mobile Phone is a light and sound project in public space, where mobile phones will be gathered from city folks and hung on a tree for 24 hours.
To participate in creating the work you can drop off your phone on 26 August, from 19:00h on, to be hung on the tree in front of the Reinoldikirche. You can call your friends (with a public phone!) who have done the same and thus make their mobiles shine in the tree. Further numbers of special phones which already hang in the tree are announced to the public to create a colourful and polyphonic ring-tone concert.
Free yourself and and enjoy one day without your mobile phone!
