An LP with the picture of fried eggs is turning on top of the radio-recorder Latvia. The LP is constantly skipping.The viewer can turn the radio’s two knobs in different directions. On the left, a male voice is captured; on the right – a female one. The viewer can tune them at his own discretion. The voices can intersect in a dialogue,be separate or overlap. The object’s principal theme is the difficulty of mutual understanding, of a dialogue. A man and a woman only air their thoughts and feelings, but they don’t hear each other. a woman’s statements are more emotional; those of a man – more didactic. These are like different waves in a radio. Each participant transmits his/her wave on his/her own frequency. Through the participation of a third party (a viewer, a stranger, a witness), a temporary dialogue can be created.
