The Big Art Mob goes truly mobile

The Big Art Mob, Channel4’s project to create the first comprehensive map of Public Art across the UK, continues to grow from strength to strength. You can send photos direct from your mobile or PC — and it works very, very well — it’s the guys at MoBlogUK who’re providing the technology for it.

Alfie, one of the top chaps there, posted today about their mobilised service — it’s The Big Art Mob, but for mobile browsers.
