Callspace is a digital arts installation that utilizes cell phone technology to network ambient sound from unpopulated, site-specific locations throughout a given area. Six cell phones are modified to run on solar power and answer automatically when an incoming call is received. The modified cellphones are then placed in their locations throughout the city, and connections are made between the cell phones and cellular telephones located in the exhibition space. The output of each telephone is wired directly to a dedicated loudspeaker housed in a monolithic speaker enclosure.
