Sound Installation with Phonebook
6:32 min loop
This project refers to the conscious connections between religion and Colombian names. Without a tinge of emotion, I read all catholic surnames and given names I can find in the Bogotá phonebook. The sound descends from a speaker. Underneath it, on a pedestal, lies the sacred book, which can be leafed by the public. By means of the repetitive reading, the sound reminisces a prayer.
