phone feedback

If you call a phone next to another phone, put them both on speakerphone they create a sonic environment that relays any sound made in the physical space between them. This is the basis for a new installation called ‘hold the line’. It came to me after experiencing it and i currently like it for 2 main reasons – the 2 digital objects create a sonic space in metaphysics and I also really dislike modern communication, and this is a destructive way of conveying this.

I have put an add for old mobile phones. I will need to 50 phones and 50* sim cards. I will make a passage so the spectator can walk down an isle and their sounds will be distorted and bounced back within it. Ive been thinking about doing it with the lights off and the phones hanging from the ceiling. This way their sounds will be more noticeable and it refrences the classic image of a phone hanging off the receiver.
