JESSICA VOORSANGER

SOUNDPIECE (124k)

Cab Gallery Greeting
Jessica's enthusiasm for the cult of celebrity allowed her to take a piece of information given to all New York taxi passengers as a starting point for her Cab Gallery piece. Recorded by a fading star of film or TV (Ed Asner and Joan Collins for example), the passenger, on closing the door is reminded of the importance of seatbelts For her audio piece Jessica, in her own voice, creates her own version, not as a star but as an artist.

"Hi! Welcome to the Cab Gallery. I'm Jessica Voorsanger.
It used to be that traditional artists wore a beret and a smock,
now we wear our seat belts!
Be the art star that you are and buckle up for safety!
Enjoy your visit!"
