QUIXOTEA Moblog Performance in Turin

During one week QUIXOTE, a puppet, will explore Turin travelling within a network of writers, undefined at the beginning and growing day by day. Their task will be to accompany him around sharing his story with us, chronicling his journey through the city.

Quixote’ journey is tracked via a GPS/GSM system in order to show on the website the exact geo-location of each moblog post and to define the topology of the network arisen during the performance.

Each writer who gets in touch with Quixote needs to follow a set of simple rules.

Spend with QUIXOTE one day only. During this day the writer can post messages through her own mobile phone, whether text, an image, or both, following the instructions inside QUIXOTE’s backpack. There are no constrictions, writers are free to post what they want.

At the end of the day, pass Quixote to the next writer.

The last writer, at the end of the week, must help Quixote return home. To do this, she will post a last comment or picture, revealing the place and time for returning Quixote.
