Dimensions vary, 90 minutes
Edition of 3 signed and numbered copies [+2 AP]

Vintage bakelite phones from the 40's and 50's have been retrofitted to play audio from an iPhone which contains a feature film-length collection of telephone conversations where the subjects are being wiretapped or listened in on, or believe they are. The listener becomes implicated in their surveillance, overhearing the stunted cadence and reticence of the cautious and paranoid characters (“I...can’t speak...right now...”).
