Let Freedom Ring by Bryan M. Boutwell

48 x 48"

I wanted to create a piece of Art that was a tribute to the home phone. Before cell phones we needed to speak and listen while communicating on the phone. There was an initmacy that simply can't be achieved through texting. Our voice and our tone, our inflection and our pauses between words told more about our emotional and mindset than a text message can relay. I love texting but ever since becoming more of a texter I've come to realize how much more bravery it takes me to actually dial a phone number to speak to someone. There is a vulnerability that takes place when over the phone that can be avoided while texting. This piece of Art is dedicated to the old way of communicating with people, and the speical intimacy that can only be captured while listening to someone else describe their world.
