Chicago artist Laura Mayer has launched an interesting new audio art project - http://howareyoudoingproject.com Anyone can call in on an 800 number and record their answer. The artist then curates and posts the best material culled from these random voicemails and posts it on the website.
This is the type of audio art project I've long wanted to do. It's interactive, and involves collaboration with an anonymous public via phones. There are a bunch of new web tools springing up that allows work like this to be created. Just a few years ago these free/low cost tools didn't exist. I'll be highlighting a few more of these tools in future posts.
