Pick Up the Phone
Pick Up the Phone, Installation for Nelson at its Best
Capitol Theatre, Fall 2017-Winter 2018
People from Nelson were engaged through the ‘Nelson at Its Best’ initiative to share their response to two questions: What is your experience of poverty? and What helps?. Taking excerpts from the written submissions, Amy Bohigian recorded four peoples’ voices, then wired each intimate vignette into one of three rotary phones. The voices begin to talk when you pick up the phone, prompting a connection to a person in the community telling the listener about their personal experiences of poverty.
