An experiential exhibit using the audio of whispering to reveal an unknown social commentary.
Walls can have ears, the vents in your floor can have eyes, and the pipes in your bathroom are dark tunnels snaking through an atmosphere of conspiracy. In a world of collective scrutiny, hushed tones and murmurs are the only communication for survival. Whispering in the home is now the only sound heard in personal life, the hidden expression of knowledge, and dissemination in the dark. A museum exhibit proposal, “The Whisperers” portrays an era of paranoia where daughters spied upon mothers, neighbors eavesdropped on neighbors, and loved ones quickly betrayed one another. Illustrating the communication of whispering and its effects on familial and neighborly relationships, this interactive experience is about dwellings, shadows, and spaces with compartmentalized narratives crowded with emotion.
