I Just Called…  

Coming to Glengormley Library is an interactive artwork created by Northern Ireland/New Zealand artist Colin James Woods.  I Just called is a curated series of voice recordings of people pretending to leave a voice message to a loved one.  Each anonymous caller's words are unscripted and without context, but the result is immensely affecting for the listener.  The original recordings were collected in Northern Ireland and Aotearoa/New Zealand. 

The work is about love, our shared humanity and the importance of heartfelt communication.

 

Available during library opening hours.
