Art Project — Tankestrøm
Answering machines are a thing of the past, but the objet trouvé of the mundane message is also deminishing due to a rising self-consciousness of being allways-on and social media. Tankestrøm was a small art project adressing our curiousity into these small unpretentious gems. By rigging a phonenumber with an online voicemail to a publishing platform we were able to collect messages phoned in and publish them to a website. Eventually the phone service was aquired by a bigger phone company, and the service disappeared. But we might one day revive "Tankestrøm" again.
The project was a collaboration between Ane Bagger, Theis Kofoed Hjorth and myself.
