simplex complex

/ the building is calling /


audio installation with contact mics, PA system,
free software PBX, and your cellphone

Presented at scape2 at flux factory: April 2004 -> May 22nd 2004

The flux factory building is tapped.
The sound of the walls, the ceiling, stairs and pipes can be fed to your cellphone. Sign-up below, with the time when you expect to be in the building, and the building will call.

Either you will hear the sounds of the building creaking under the weight of its artiness, and if you are that kind of person (and we know you are ...) you can revel in the auditory voyeurism of overhearing those juicy tid-bits you know the others are recanting just as you leave the room.

Or you will be the star! For a minute your phone will become a microphone and your private sounds, or any sounds you can bring to your phone will be fed back into the exhibition space. Your ordinary cellphone will become a recording device and you will be one of the stars of Scape2
