Future Voicemails at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

Future Voicemails at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

Participants in our recent event at the Smithsonian American Art Museum got a special treat. A chronofall happened inside the museum galleries, leading searchers to explore the collection from a future thinking and climate change perspective. Not only were voicemails recorded; objects from the futures were also created – inspired by the sounds of other FutureVoicemails.

Dr. Sarah Atkinson and Dr. Julie Doyle hosted a voicemail creation workshop at the University of Brighton. As residents of the southern coast of England and subjects of the winter flooding in the region, participants in this workshop had a very personal connection to climate change.

The YouthCaN group at AMNH recovered a chronofact, did forwardhearing, and created some future voicemails in our 90-minute workshop. In the words of the students:

“It was fun because it made us think and be physical and be creative.”

“It teaches you that even though we think we know what the future has in store, it’s like we don’t care and we just ignore it.”
