Talk to Me, 2018
Digital screen, chair, headphones, microphone.

“Please sit down and put the headphones on” is written on the screen. When a passer-by puts on the headphones, the text disappears and the screen starts reacting to the person’s voice as a solid color (ie. magenta). Through the headphones, the participant hears the voice of another person, which is seen on the screen as another color (ie. green). The participant soon realizes that the screen is a portal to a distant place.
