Listen Sandy

Made by Nikki Sylianteng Guri Venstad

...I have been living out of a backpack for the last month, and relying entirely on the kindness of strangers. It’s made me question what it is to have a home or to have many possessions...

During Sandy, some lost loved ones, some their homes, some their power, and some just sat tightly at home, watching the news. We experienced Sandy in many different ways but all with our own realizations.

Listen Sandy is an audio installation project that uses pay phones around New York and New Jersey as a sort of time capsule to remind us of our thoughts, reflections, and realizations during the hurricane.
