A series of recordings of my one-year-old son, Sam, shouting in the rooms of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

Sam's response to large resonant spaces at that age was to shout - to hear the sound of his own voice reverberate. His actions propose an alternative way of experiencing the space, a mini-revolt against the privilege afforded the visual and the cerebral within the hierarchy of the museum.
