Speaking at the Wall

speaking a wall

I used to hear voices in my head, but now they seem to be coming from the walls – am I back in to the womb? No wait.. it's a wall that reacts to the spectators voice (quicktime). The installation plays with the new notions of space offered by the digital/physical world and is meant as a pure shape of intuition. Italian design for narcissistic delight! We are awaiting a more advanced version of the wall that could, for instance, remember and show who was in a the room before. No wait... why not do a version with bananas?

The artpiece seems almost religious. I see a relationship with the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Wall (Wailing Wall) in Jerusalem or the http://www.sacred-destinations.com/china/temple-of-heaven-beijing.htm (echo wall) at the Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan) Beijing, China. The wall is patient and will allways be there. Trust the wall. Feel its security; the wall of FAITH!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
