LETTERE DEL TUBO (PIPE LETTERS)
Steel chimney case
Bluetooth mp3 player
internal soundproof cover to direct the sound
10 letters in 10 minutes 10 seconds interval.
From the inside of the duct comes a voice. The artist reads love letters written by teenagers about 14-16 year old in the years 2002-2004: The audience, in order to listen to them, is forced to an active performance that obliges them to bend or stretch in the direction of the pipe exit vertices. The tube is coated internally with an insulating acoustic mass that does not allow the sound to be dissipated casually in the environment and thus permits the sound to pour out in a directional way. The letters do not want to have an identity relating to a single person but try to connect to the feeling of a community, as the mirrorlike structure itself reflects the adjacent reality.
