Archive of Forgotten Signals - interactive FMS installation


After Twitter, SMS, Facebook we introduce the brand new communication tool FMS - Flag Messaging Service. FMS transfers your personal message into the semaphore flag alphabet of the maritime world of the 19th century. Post your personal message in the archive to send as FMS. You manually stamp the message in the flag alphabet. Then you can send the message from one of our flag-it-yourself stations into the world or it can be send by one of our professional flag messengers. In return you receive a unique FMS message from a previous visitor to take and decipher.
