Blink (aka Blink Media) was a partnership best known for it’s exploration of the creative potential of mobile phones between 1999 and 2009. This is an archive site.


Co founded in Huddersfield in 1999 by Lisa Roberts and Andrew Wilson, Blink enjoyed ten years of experimentation that stretched the ubiquitous technologies of the day to fit the needs and context of the user.

Our cross-disciplinary, multi-platform work has created original and effective combinations of science, film, mobile phones, real world games, RFID, Bluetooth, performance, literature, theatre, new media technologies, interactive architecture, community and public art.

Here are a few examples of what we got up to.
