     Actually, this piece was installed in a small corner of the This Is
Not Art festival that I was at a week or so ago in Newcastle, Australia. It
was just a Mac running in a small room next to their video lab, and there
was no explanation to the exhibit except what was on screen, which was
pretty confusingly worded. Next to the computer was a large trash can with
a few paltry cellphones at the bottom. I can't remember if there was
something written on the front of the bin or not. If memory serves I was
with Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) and Irene Moon at the time and we read
the instructions/explanatory text multiple times and nearly gave up in
confusion until I finally sussed what was going on (glad to get
confirmation that I made the right guess, at least). Once we admired the
cleverness, we got bored and started digging into the bin to find that some
of the cellphones had candy in them. Yum!
