Speaker box

Last circle-related work for a while- Speaker box I found a box of small speakers that I have salvaged from discarded electronics over the year. These are in a box I recycled from an old project, with forged hinges and distressed paint to look a bit medieval. Speakers are behind forged bars. A light-activated speaker generates sound when the box is opened, making a cry that varies with light input. The lining of the box is made of glued-down scraps of the Chamapign-Urbana phonebook. I was thinking about constrained voices-- by internal effects of fear, belief, ideology; or by external pressures of society, law, politics. An odd box for strange times.
