Leave A Message is an interactive sonic art installation that encourages people to leave messages in 6 phones hanging from the ceiling.
When a participant says ‘Hello’ into the mouthpiece, that phone will then ask the participant how they are feeling, or what they are looking forward to today and so on. Up to 10 messages can be stored on each phone until the oldest message is replaced.
The messages play in an overlapping loop and anyone can approach the phones and listen to the anonymous messages left behind by others.
The experience explores what qualities of movement convey a sense of presence, a sentience that is alive and sympathetic to your existence. The piece aims to create a meditative space into which the only thing retained is movement.
Installation posing the question of whether computers can be racist by highlighting the potential for discrimination of face recognition technology.
