    The Bass-Station: a community based information space



    The Bass-Station is a novel mobile device that allows people to easily share their artistic digital belongings with their immediate physical community. Building on currently available technology, incorporated into an everyday object, we create an information space that affords people of an artistic and collaborative community the ability to share and exchange their personal media. The Bass-Station facilitates communication and sharing between people in a local community, making use of technology as a medium for developing relationships and new artistic forms.
