Spiral of Silence

[Martin John Callanan / Spiral of Silence / 2006]

Silence no longer exists. This is especially true in our urban centres. The cities we have created, and the infrastructures that serve our every need, generate constant noise*.

Using military equipment, a zone of silence is generated in a public space, isolating included individuals from all forms of digital communication. The exclusion zone returns the included individuals to a pre-digital state**.

* noise is unwanted sound; but not necessarily audible.
** it is questioned whether this is peaceful or disturbing for the affected individual(s).
