In Overhere, a work by Lauren McCarthy, Twitter feeds of two characters are converted into whispered automated voices and play through speakers embedded in objects in the lobby. The feeds are experienced separately, intimately, requiring participants to get close, to move, to listen, to work together to overhear the dialogue.
With the collective action of two or more participants, a full conversation is reformed in physical space based on the virtual communication of two fictional characters.
At overheredarkhorse.com participants twitter the things they overhear in public bathrooms. They are added to an online map of NYC, creating a visualization of the interactions, ideas, and exchanges occurring in public bathrooms.
