Call the others!
A path leads to a pay phone in the
middle of this lawn. Because there is no keyboard on the phone, it is impossible
to call a number of your choice. Once the telephone handset is off the hook, there
is a connection to an identical telephone booth on a lawn at another biennial art event. The conversation undergoes a live series of eroding translations via google translate after which the system converts those back into synthetically spoken language. Neither you nor the person
on the other side knows with certainty whether there is communication with a person or a machine.
