My Name is Sarah Simpson

Since the Playing with Words book appeared, the project has been extended to incorporate a live DVD, a cd and a website.
My name is Sarah Simpson was created for the audio cd and website. It features a re-imagining of some of the many cold calls I regularly get from debt relief companies on my landline. Since I made the audio version, this piece too has migrated into a new manifestation as a gallery piece in the exhibition Silencer, curated by Mark Jackson at the Payne Shurvell Gallery in 2010. Here a 1960s telephone rang intermittently with a variety of ringtones. When answered the piece would play out through the handset. You can hear the original here or find a collage from the exhibition on the Payne Shurvell website.
