Since 2004, artist Antoni Abad has developed a series of innovative, geographically diverse, multidisciplinary and socially committed projects designed to fit the needs of different human groups at risk of social exclusion. megafone.net invites these groups to express their experiences and opinions using cell phones to instantly publish them on the web in the form of audio, video, text and photos. Participants thus transform these devices into digital megaphones to amplify their individual and collective voices.
Under the scientific direction of Roc Parés, this book examines megafone.net from various perspectives that range from those of project participants and coordinators Eliezer Muniz dos Santos, Jorge Morales and Mery Cuesta to the multidisciplinary academic approaches of Gerard Goggin, Pablo La Parra, Alberto López Cuenca and Kimberly Sawchuk.
megafone.net has obtained the maximum international recognition in the field of electronic art thanks to its pioneering results in the arts and in social communication.
While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
