Cellphone Bonanza was exhibited in a group show called Speak and Spell, curated by Tory Franklin and held at SOIL Gallery. The intimate setting of a bathroom is used to display the omnipresence of cellphones. I covered real bathroom fixtures with phone book pages and had over 100 in-operable cell phone in the mix. I performed at the opening. People were invited to pick up a cellphone and ‘call’ me as I was sitting in the bathtub (right in front of them). I would not engage or talk with viewers unless I was ‘called’.
