Location: YMCA Central, London
Medium: Sound installation
An audio installation of short, unsigned letters installed as listening stations in the London YMCA Central building. These words of encouragement, of thanks, of support, of doubt, of anger, quietly act as a poetic provocation to invite curiosity around wellbeing.
This rolling loop of mp3 readings was installed at five locations around London YMCA Central during September and October 2016, showcasing a wonderful range of expressions and anonymous human connections.
Written by the general public as well as the members and staff of the YMCA, the letters were recorded on site at and read by a multitude of equally anonymous voices. Comissioned by the London YMCA, Architecture 00 and The School of Life, this was as part of a series of artworks as part of the Eudaemonia series.
