Murmurs is a project about displacing sound from it’s original location and to show a form of surveillance through sound.
While the feedback we have garnered through the session was mild, one important note was that the negative gossip could be traced back to the source if listened intently. Therefore we have figured to raise the pitch or lower the pitch at intervals to avoid this.
Overall I think the project is very interesting. But adding more listening points would defeat it’s purpose. Therefore maybe a more ubiquitous signifier, like a telephone booth would be more effective.
Enjoyed this as I enjoy the exploration of private and personal spaces and what constitute privacy concerns and ethics. Hope to do more in the future.
