For one week in May, the diners in Restaurant 11 will be confronted with the photos the users of Playing FLICKR select. By sending a keyword through SMS, users can request all photos on the database that are tagged with that particular keyword.

Cuno de Boer programmed the first version Playing FLICKR using PHP and his own mobile phone sim card. Now it is used for the Flickr Peep Show and the Playing FLICKR installation, which will take place over the course of one week in Club/Restaurant 11.

To find the phone number to SMS to, and see the installation, you can visit club/restaurant 11 on the Oosterdokskade 5, 11th floor, and having a look at the menu for further instructions. The opening will be at 20:30, during the Mediamatic Mobtagging Salon.
