Country of Origin United States
Description What does the collective voice of the internet sound like? Countless others are with you when you browse the web, some reading the same words at the same time, and yet you have no way of sensing their presence. Listening Post gives voice to this vast, silent world, transforming collective online activity and communication into a multi-layered sound installation. This uniquely designed space monitors thousands of online exchanges in real time, revealing the patterns and rhythms of people communicating with each other.
