A series of recordings of the artist's one-year-old son shouting in the rooms of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

Young childrens' response to large resonant spaces is often to shout—to hear the sound of their own voice reverberating. Their actions propose an alternative way of experiencing these large spaces: in the context of the Metropolitan Museum, a mini-revolt against the privilege afforded the visual and the intellectual within the hierarchy of the museum.
