Listening Post

Listening Post by Ben Rubin and Mark Hansen grabs text fragments from internet chat rooms and spits them back out via synthesized voice in realtime.  (Admittedly, this is a rather coarse description of a truly exquisite piece.)  Having toured internationally and won many awards over the years, Listening Post can be considered a "blockbuster."  First seen at the Whitney Museum in 2002, it's good to be able to revisit with this video.
