"In one part of the city, writers type out observations of the world unfolding around them. In another part of the same city, a town crier receives these observations via a tablet — a modern day version of the trusty scroll. The criers ring their bells and declare these observations to the public. Drawing upon patterns of relaying information that mirror Twitter or Facebook, Town Criers treats everyday considerations as the news. Intimate and minute details are transmitted through the ether, and then filtered through the live body in an oratorical sculpture."
