Saturday 22 September 2007 12.00–16.00

Mobile phones and portable technology are everywhere – but do we use them to their full potential? How attached are you to your mobile phone? Mobilography creates a visual language which captures symbols and works of art in Tate Britain’s surrounding environment.

Tate Forum and the artist Tracey Moberly explore the world using mobile phones and help you discover how portable technology can be used to collect images to build up a contemporary visual narrative of individual experiences of life and your immediate environment.
There will be debate, music, film and a chance to view Tate Britain’s historic and contemporary social and political art.
