"You're kidding me?!" is a wireless voice-based service that helps users simulate a mobile phone conversation. The automatic service is designed to assist people at conferences, gallery openings and other places where being socially disconnected is no fun.
After dialing the service number, users can choose between two types of conversations: a 'casual' or an 'important' conversation. The user is subsequently guided through a series of words and sentences that - when being repeated - makes it look and sound like a real conversation is taking place!
"You're kidding me!?" is designed for the INDEX:2005 conference in Copenhagen. The service is provided by 1508 A/S - the design consultancy that I am currently working for. It is based on a conceptual artwork called dialogue that I created some time ago.
