In collaboration with Zack Bent
The colloquial word eavesdropper conjures up a great picture of a neighbor or family member so curious about your business that they would hang from the very eaves of your house, straining to hear the conversation inside. Madison Park Tully’s, the site for our installation, is a cauldron of social activity. It is nearly impossible NOT to eavesdrop on nearby conversations. Zack and Gala Bent have played up this element of the neighborhood coffee shop by creating outposts where the imagined collective conversation of the space can be gathered, funneled and filtered into the actual eaves of the building.
