Conversations, 2012 [MIF221] was recorded between 3:00 PM, April 27, 2012 till 7:00 PM, May 07, 2012 by Brandon Locher in NYC.
Conversations, 2006 [MIF007] was the process of building conversations and response by calling and recording random people in the Johnstown Area Phone Book, recorded on November 21st, 2006.
After the first conversation "Person 001: Hello. Hello?" was recorded and documented I then proceeded to call another random person with a playback recording of the previous persons' response. The person that is being called and recorded is fooled into thinking they are talking to an actual person when only they are responding to a recording of the previous conversation. As I move through the same process for each conversation, more information develops, and the concrete themes and ideas start to form more complex exchanges between the people and the recording.
