BLESS asked Popkalab to develop this interactive piece for their BLESS N.53 CONTENTTENDERS issue commissioned by mfc-michèle didier in Paris. This piece carries a work of Ow Kawara called “one million years”. One pillow contains the male voice, the other the female voice. You can hear the years by pressing the pillows or throwing them. The pillows are connected via a wireless network and only work together, alternating the passing of the years.
For the Communicating Pillows we used two rasps in a wireless network, both pillows contained pressure sensors that when pressed played back a sample.
