André Avelãs and The Headphones Show at the Abrons Arts Center

André Avelãs, Earphones, 2007

André Avelãs' piece in The Headphones Show (curated by Alan Licht) at the Abrons Arts Center consisted of 1,000 headphone earbuds. 40 were set up to work as microphones in the space, while the other 960 operated as speakers, creating a continually-crashing feedback loop within the space.  It was almost as if Richard Serra's Scatter Piece (1967) had suddenly learned to make noise.

A show devoted to pieces that utilize headphones (sometimes as their sole material, as was the case with Seth Price's audio work) doesn't make for the most thrilling photos, but I've included a few more on flickr.

The actual cables from the phones may be way too short; or, maybe if they are really long, they might get stuck in your things, Headphone Now Guide or perhaps even your arms and legs e.g.
