Teen Buzz is a project capturing the youth's relationship with their surroundings in the town of Merthyr Tydfil. With the assistance of a Merthyr creative I attempted to represent the youth's perspective, looking at both mine and their past and present. The term Teen Buzz originates from a phenomenon which first appeared because of an invention which was created in Merthyr, the mosquito frequency. This electronic device is used to deter youths from loitering; It achieves this by emitting a frequency which can only heard by people under the age of 25. However, youths transformed the mosquito frequency into the Teen buzz; a mobile ringtone which could not be heard by adults over the age of 25.
