Telephone Line (Trilogy)
Fair Game, Estudiotres, Chicago, IL, 2008

As a study on the emasculating power of telephones, I made three telephones - two payphones and one desk phone, and embedded in each one is their own sound recordings. The first one consists of the Scorpio killer taunting Harry Callahan in Dirty Harry. The second one is taken out of the threatening phone calls made by the terrorists from Die Hard: With a Vengeance. The desk phone contains a musical message from a acapella rendition of ELO's Telephone Line.
