the conversation contraption – switch

Switch by Cat Jones for The Conversation Contraption, Casula Powerhouse, Sydney, 2008

Switch is a mobile communication unit for live instant messaging manned by the sweetest ever Switch Bitch, Cat Jones. Switch delivers intimate messages for you and from you. Part medium, part analogue message machine, she offers a translation service, receives and connects calls on your behalf from distant lands and even from your past.

The Conversation Contraption is an interactive installation by The League of Imaginary Scientists, appearing all round the world with local and remote contributing artists.
