The Public Utteraton Machine is an interactive public art work to be anchored into a sidewalk in Brooklyn, NY and then Long Island City, NY, for two weeks each. Its aim is to engage with the local community in which it is located in order to ask about people’s opinions on public art in New York. It looks like a 19th century working public telehone, but also features imprinted images of other public art. Do locals want it, need it, appreciate it? Do they want it in their neighborhood? What is its role and purpose? The Utteraton will help study this topic. All responses that result from this project will be publiclaly availabel online for others to use. It is made of alluminium steel alloy that has been custom fabricated.
