The MegaPhone Box
So for the last fews weeks we’ve been rather curious as to what exactly has been going on in our Mission Hall. It all started when a huge bright yellow phone box, plaster cast fists and some megaphones, arrived on our doorstep.
This marvellous creation is in fact a new interactive art installation commissioned especially for Hull Freedom Festival.
The MegaPhone Box is part of Humber Calling, a series of 6 re interpretations of the famous Cream Hull phone boxes curated by internationally renowned sound and visual artist Scanner. Each of the artworks is inspired by this years theme – broadcast: voices of freedom.
The MegaPhone Box has been a collective effort from Omni Studio – a group of northern based artists, some even Interplay Alumni.
The MegaPhone Box takes the form of the of a telephone box and turns it inside out. It invites the audience to interact with their voices, which are amplified, distorted and augmented through an array of megaphones and LEDs to create an evolving landscape of sound and visuals’
The Festival runs from the 4th-6th September at various sites throughout the City.
The MegaPhone Box with the other Humber calling commissions can be seen From Friday onwards at Queens Dock Full Info Here
