Over the past decades, almost no other technological innovation has been able to find such widespread dissemination so easily, or so rapidly, nor take such all-embracing possession of our daily lives, as the portable telephone. As camera, Walkman, organizer, navigating device, and post box for private and business messages, the mobile phone does not only represent a connection to the world for the affluent parts of the planet the cell phone conquers public urban spaces as well commercial ones and dissolves previous borders between them. Its use causes fundamental shifts in cultural codes and intervenes in social textures.
With essays from the fields of cultural and media studies, philosophy, sociology and art from Olaf Arndt, Günter Burkart, Kenichi Fujimoto, Dominic Johnson, Christiane Mennicke-Schwarz, Sadie Plant, Paul Feigelfeld & Jan Wenzel, Miya Yoshida
