Talk to Me

The Kitchen Street Festival (NYC) and New York City Landmarks

2001


This performance satirizes the use of cell phones in public spaces and the infiltration of modern technology in urban culture. Toting a giant hot pink cell phone, the artist chatters, gossips and rants her way through the city, humorously depicting this new social custom. For one presentation at the Kitchen Street Festival, the artist portrays a representative of a fictitious cell phone service provider, offering mock service contracts and distributing pink cardboard cell phones.
