Abstract: Since 2004, artist Antoni Abad has developed a series of innovative, geographically diverse, multidisciplinary and socially committed projects designed to fit the needs of different human groups at risk of social exclusion. invites these groups to express their experiences and opinions using cell phones to instantly publish them on the web in the form of audio, video, text and photos. Participants thus transform these devices into digital megaphones to amplify their individual and collective voices.
