Thoughts on the Telephone process

It was really challenging to decode a sound into a collage so I though that I would try to understand the set of rules used to create the sound and take that as my own principle. While listening to the piece, the idea that I got was that common household objects were modified and used to reproduce a wild and imaginary new space - that could exist but in reality it doesn't. Starting with this principle I have tried to recreate environments with a kinetic feeling. The environments could be very large but they present themselves trapped in a even smaller household item.
