Emergency control room is an audio installation that invites the listener to walk or stay still in a precarious media landscape. To signal a departure from the visuals that inundates our senses: of television screens, breaking news, newspaper articles, advertisements.
Located in a political climate that is wracked with anxiety and obsessed with a need to control, silence and stifle, we examine the here and now. Based on interviews conducted with various actors within the media industry, ECR was an attempt to look closely at the sights and sounds that permeate our daily senses and shape our opinions. The voices heard are the same you have read and seen but here they speak outside the restrictions of a byline, a face, a picture.
