Some say that sentence construction is like a work of art, and Nokia certainly seems to agree. It’s crafted a mobile phone application that turns text messages into “mind-bending” masterpieces.

Nokia's Text Art app: turns SMS text into artwork. Apparently

Text Art - the brainchild of artist Marius Watz – only requires a budding Dali to type a message of up to 40 characters into their phone, before the application translates the text into a “unique piece of MMS art”.

Nokia didn't say precisely how this is achieved.

The picture can then be sent to your pals or set as your phone’s wallpaper. Alternatively – if you’re really vain – it could be uploaded to a printing website, slapped onto a huge canvas and stuck up on your living room wall.

The Text Art application is only available for the E71 and can be downloaded for free online. ®
