DATAFLOW : mashups

The FABMOB platform is composed of diverse components, each—was conceived to/and is capable of—functioning independently. Component types include: software1, hardware2 and networks3. The creative gesture giving the project its form and function is the judicious choice of components, and the efficient design of the interstitial fabric that binds them together. FABMOBs is both a bricolage4 and a mashup5
which is, in fact, the project’s force
