The Megaphone Project

“an experience that eludes words while asking questions of a different order” The Age (Australia)

For The Megaphone Project, Australian-based Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey will fill Glasgow Science Centre and the bandstand of Kelvingrove Park with bright red megaphones of different shapes and sizes. Investigating how people listen and communicate in public spaces, The Megaphone Project allows visitors to play with the instruments, shout and listen through them, lift and reposition them, or simply to listen to the sounds, generated by a wireless audio network – from jaunty musical pieces and the buzz of bees, to a thrilling chorus when disembodied voices speak as one through all the megaphones in unison.
