What Sound Looks Like

An ongoing series cross-posted from

This is a sound-art installation in the basement level of MoCA, the contemporary art museum in Los Angeles. It’s a readymade installation with no specific credited author. It’s a bank of what apparently used to be public phones. Now it is a shiny, burnished metal sculpture that could be mistaken for a work by Tristan Perich or Alva Noto. It’s a wall hanging that serves as a monument to a distant form of communication, to a time when we were, like the work itself is, tethered.
