Cup & String | 3577 Bigelow Boulevard, Pittsburgh PA

Materials: Wood, Shower Curtains, Projector, Microphones

A public installation at Ultra Low Res Studio, the works mimics the emotional interaction that can be experienced when children play with a cup and string telephone. Two separate partitions house participants while providing a sense of enclosure to create a comfortable space to have a dialogue within.  The verbal interaction between two drives a projection that is dependent on the length of the conversation. Through this, the installation enables people to have an intimate chat that can simultaneously inform a space, affecting the mood and atmosphere of the area between the partitions.
