Birth of a short message

Installation, 2015

Two people, microphone, speaker, text on paper

Two people stand together. Each of them is equipped with a microphone and speaker. Together they read out a paper script. Via speakers one can listen to words, sentences and fragments of sentences that turn out to be a short message chat between mother and son. The short messages are collected since 2013 and are read out aloud as fluent dialogue without any further information. The heard words talk about this and that, daily stuff and daily life. While doing so they also talk about talking and communication and what moms and sons text each other these days. A fragmentary portrait of mother, son and what they share through the medium can be heard.
