An archetype of a phone, a landline, sits inconspicuously in the background, ringing every so often, in real time, whenever there is an earthquake somewhere in the world. It uses uses a Raspberry Pi computer, and connects to the US Geological Survey website to activate the phone’s bells. One cycle of ringing per magnitude of earthquake. If a viewer is brave enough to listen to the receiver, they will hear a soundscape collected from deep sea underwater microphones.
