Twelve Hours Ahead

Telephone, answering machine, desk lamp
Dimensions variable
2005

My parents in the Philippines were given the number for this telephone but they did not know that the telephone was in a gallery in Cambridge, MA. If they called, the phone would ring and their message would play out loud in the gallery as it was being recorded on the answering machine. A display on the answering machine indicates how many messages they had left.
