TXTual Healing descibes itself as an SMS enabled interactive street performance. Positioning the elements close to windows and doors passers by can fill in speech bubbles by sending an sms message to a computer to effectively narate what’s going on inside.
Paul Notzold, the creator of TXTual Healing says, “The piece explores the use of mobile technology to trigger dialogue, action and create content for a staged public performance. By using the facade of a building the intention is to engage an audience to think about the physical spaces we move through, live in and share. I’m trying to address public vs. private space and what kind of dialogue might transpire if we shared out private thoughts. The piece was designed to encourage play, idea sharing, thought, discourse, and entertainment.”
