Curious Object
April 2017, Somerset House

Commissioned by Now Play This for the 10 Second Room.

When you pick up Telephone's receiver, you will be asked a question. You have ten seconds to give your answer. All responses are recorded and automatically remixed into audio poems. Telephone gives you a prompt with private intimacy but frames your response as public: others may overhear, and the audio poems are uploaded online. It is at once secret, personal, social, and very visible.
