Don’t Forget to Call is a 7-channel video installation exploring mediated forms of communication. The installation is composed of seven ‘calls’ to my grandparents and other deceased ancestors, some of whom I’ve never met or spoken to. Throughout their lives, most of our communication was mediated through calling cards and, more recently, calling home phone numbers through Skype. This installation extends my familiarity with mediation into another realm: is a call to the afterlife that much further than a call over the internet?
