Mini Museum of Sound
In the late part of 2014 we found an old phone at an estate sale. We thought it might be neat to have it hang in the shop and instead of YOU talking into it, IT would talk to you. The idea evolved quickly into what we now call our "mini museum of sound". That original phone (along with a few others) now hangs inside an beautiful 1940's wooden phone booth, complete with it's original accordian door and pressed tin walls. Though the content of the sound installations changes regularly, you are guaranteed to hear one reciting poetry and another reading your fortune.
Current Installation: The Life and Work of Oregon Poet Hazel Hall, curated by Laura Glazer, April 26th to December 31st, 2020. You may listen to the recordings here. Many thanks to OSU Press who collaborated on this project in conjunction with their publication of The Collected Poems of Hazel Hall.
