You have to stop what you are doing and watch this video. I have never experienced what I felt when I first saw it. I remember how to dial a phone, yet is seems like a lifetime ago. It looks familiar, yet it seems so strange.
That’s the word that describes how I feel, strange. This video almost gives me the creeps. I’m watching one famous person, after another famous person, dialing a phone, and then eventually pressing buttons I’m sure there is some deep psychological meaning behind this video. For me, it’s spooky. Everyone looks they are a child playing with a toy..
I came across the video when I was searching for new art exhibits in NYC. I found out that the Paula Cooper Gallery is presenting Christian Marclay’s “Phones” at its New York venue. The exhibition entitled “Phones,” includes the early works by Christian Marclay comprising sculptures and a video.
I’m anxious to hear your reaction to the video. It may put a smile on your face, while you may start crying inside. Technology has changed so much. And we have lived to see it all.
