The Surface Patterns project to text the story of a city

The Surface Patterns is a project by Centrifugal Forces that plans to build a huge and evolving archive of memories and revealing facts on Huddersfield (in Yorkshire) past via SMS.

Users to send a text, receive historic facts about 10 different parts of the city and get the chance to leave a message or memory about Huddersfield.

An audio line is available for people who don’t want to use text.

Surface Patterns started on Thursday and will run for a year. Texts are charged at the normal rate but it is free to receive the information. The audio line is charged at the normal local rate.
