One Free Minute

What would you say, given one free minute of anonymous public speech?


One Free Minute is a mobile sculpture designed to allow for instances of anonymous public speech. Anonymous callers to One Free Minute's toll-free line can record a message of up to a minute, to be broadcast in the public soundscape. The speech produced by the speaker can be heard clearly more than 150 feet away from the sculpture.

To participate in One Free Minute, call now and leave a message on our answering machine. We'll transfer your message the sculpture (that's it on the left), and play it back randomly during future performances:

1-888-500-**** Canada & USA (toll free)

One Free Minute is in archive mode until its next performance. It was last performed in Montreal in May 2009 as part of La Biennale de Montréal. Come ride with us as we broadcast your speeches in public space. Your speeches have also been performed in Columbus Ohio, Quebec City, Vancouver, San Jose and Berlin!
