Description (in English)

"The MEMEMEME project deals with the interaction between mobile phones embededd with a robotic arms mechanism. Each corresponding arm and mobile phone is controlled by vision software. By combining the articulated arm hardware with redesigned software commonly used to recognize human faces, the artists created a system in which the mobile phones can communicate as we used to before we invented them, that is, "face to face"."(1)

MEMEMEME#selfie is a smart phone that moves around with the help of robotic arms and looks at it self in the mirror. When the vision software on the phone recognizes it self as an object a typographic animation with the words MEMEMEME is played on the screen. At the same time the software is automated to take a "selfie" image of the detected phone which is posted to a tumblr feed.
