Telephone Game

Feature article in the New York Times.

The Telephone Game is a worldwide art project created by the Satellite Collective. A short phrase was sent to three artists working in different mediums. Each of their interpretations of this phrase was then sent out to two to four artists who then attempted to carry on the message in their chosen medium. On it went: the artist working with derivatives of derivatives and the message becoming more and more distorted.

In the end there were over 300 works. Selections were shown in galleries in NYC and around the country, but most people experienced it online.

The finished website shows the relationship between all the works as well as provide a way to navigate through the works one at a time. It was a challenge to create something that accomplished these objectives, showcased the works themselves, and looked distinct and attractive in its own right.
