. EAVESDROPLETS - Karen O'Rourke
A project developed in collaboration with Dispatx Art Collective - http://www.dispatx.com/
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
The streets resound with pedestrians chattering to friends or cell phones. People are crowding into Internet chat rooms, expounding on forums, posting to mailing lists and blogs, while televisons talk endlessly. At one time or another we've all overheard exchanges that seemed funny, off the wall, premonitory, surrealistic. Often composed of very ordinary remarks, their strangeness comes from the way they overlap and recombine to a stranger's ears. This random juxtaposition can shake tired expressions out of their torpor, metaphors can be mixed, reinvigorated or rendered ridiculous.
This project aims at collecting these recontextualized sound bytes and using them as starting points for collaborative net-stories. You are invited to post your favorite bits of dialog via an online questionnaire. You can also use other contributors' eavesdroplets to create a short story, an image or a sound file.
