<strong>London, United Kingdom</strong> – Sony Ericsson has launched <a href=”http://xperiastudio.com/”>Xperia™ Studio</a>, an online entertainment platform for artists and collaborators to create and share their most innovative content. The initiative reflects Sony Ericsson’s ongoing commitment to engage with consumers through high-quality entertaining content to inspire them to explore their Xperia™ phones in new ways.
The Sony Ericsson’s Xperia™ Studio invites creative thinkers, artists and intellectuals – from collaborative artists in Denmark to astrophysicists in New York – to take the range of Xperia™ handsets to their absolute limits and ultimately ‘remake reality’. Content on the platform will be updated at regular intervals from the growing pool of contributors.
<strong>Blurring the boundaries of entertainment, technology and communications: </strong>
The first phase of the project has seen collaborators from around the world use Xperia™ handsets to create content in unconventional and interesting ways – a flame-thrower camera flash, a view of the universe through the naked eye, capturing the perfect wave, creating a song from the ambient sounds of Paris and most recently capturing the extreme tricks preformed by a BMX crew in Brooklyn. Each project has been video-documented and can be viewed on the <a href=”http://xperiastudio.com/”>Xperia™ Studio</a> platform.
<strong>Collaborators from around the world: </strong>
The project underlines Sony Ericsson’s heritage as an innovator that continually strives to blur the boundaries between entertainment, technology and communications. The first round of collaborators involved in the Xperia™ Studio project includes:
<li>Illutron, a collaborative interactive art studio in Copenhagen</li>
<li>Dr. Joshua Peek, a Hubble Fellow and astrophysicist at Columbia University, NYC</li>
<li>Ed Sloane, a lifelong surfer and innovative surf photographer from Victoria, Australia</li>
<li>Annabel Linquist – an artist and musician from New York</li>
<li>Torey Kish – an extreme sports enthusiast from Brooklyn</li>
