    I was touched by this

  • lepetitfaon

    I absolutely loved this. Feel it is accurate to describe the ownership of sound belonging to those who have access to it, though find it strange this never occurred to me before, especially considering I work with disabled children. I also never thought of the ramifications for the people who have limited access to sound as a result of this, which I would not have considered if not for this piece (eg asking a child who cannot hear not to drag its feet because its rude, as though the child would understand why that particular sound is offensive). This does exactly what good art should do, directs you to the questions the artist is posing and forces you to think about it, wonderful work!
