Bonnets from “Finally, We Hear One Another” by Kelly Jaclynn Andres in collaboration Mixed Reality Lab. The piece is part of the juried ISEA 2008 exhibition in Signapore. The ISEA website describes the piece as follows: “In this artwork, pairs of visitors are equipped with a wearable series of small microphones and speakers that use wireless technology to transmit the sound of one person to the earphones of the other” (isea2008singapore.org).
The photo is by Priscilla Bracks (priscillabracks.com), who included it as part of her extensive writeup of the ISEA show for we-make-money-not-art.com. More on Andres at kellyandres.com.
