What we habitually call (2021)

Performance for READING CIRCLES #2, curated by fine printmagazine as part of ‘The Image is not Nothing (Concrete Archive)’, ACE Open

I asked friends, family and colleagues to make a call on my behalf. On the afternoon of the performance at ACE Open, each caller was assigned a phone number. They were provided with instructions and a script. On receiving a text message telling them to begin, the callers contacted an audience member via mobile in the gallery and read the script to the person on the other end. The instructions allowed for the call to simply end or for a conversation to ensue.
