Who are you, the ones that’s being heard?

F.U.M.S.

Facility for Unreceived Message Storage

In the Unheard, the middle ground or no-mans-land of communication, the Facility of Unreceived Message Storage (F.U.M.S.)is the place of disposal for lost words. Every message in the endless rows and rows of storage units has been ignored, left unsaid or prevented by time, but is still traveling, it is still trying to reach it’s intended receiver. Very few of them ever leave those shelves once it has landed there though.

If you walk down the aisles maybe you can hear some of them whisper, but you can never fully know what they intended to say. Their time and context has passed, their voices have grown fixed and quiet inside these bottles and they where never intended for you anyway.

This is a sample of 71 unheard messages collected from 7 countries.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who participated. The top picture is from the exhibition, the text under it the presentation.

Messages in bottles

Thank you everyone who entrusted me with your unheard messages! (Link to the project invitation) I have received around 70 so far, with some more on the way, and I feel very grateful to everyone who took the time to participate. I can not mention all your names, mostly because I don’t know them all.

Today has been the second day of casting and a small army of bottled messages is slowly emerging on the floor beside my work table.
