TXTual Healing: A Performance by Paul Notzold

Apr 14, 2009 At SITE Santa Fe

TXTual Healing was created by Paul Notzold in 2006 and has since become an ongoing series of interactive performances that encourage the creation of dialogue through text messaging from mobile phones. The project harnesses what has come to be known as the Short Message Service (SMS) capabilities of the cell phone as a medium to interact with and explore our shared public and physical space, not as a means to escape it. TXTual Healing builds community through public story-telling.

TXTual Healing encourages the public sharing of thoughts, experiences, and ideas using networked mobile devices that typically support more private communications. Positioning the projections next to windows, or integrating the SMS interactivity with religious, political, and socially charged graphics, invites people to share their own uncensored views of the information around them in the form of interactive theater.
