These Walls Could Talk

These Walls Could Talk is a collaborative work orchestrated by George Bixby which provides alternative audio tours of the American Museum Of Natural History. The work attempts to reinterpret the narratives of history museums using specific dioramas as starting points. For one audio piece Bixby connects a diorama about shamanism to audio produced via a text-to-speech translation of a flyer advertising the services of a mystic. Bixby aims to collect more contributions from volunteers via the site. All audio is available online, along with a downloadable PDF map of the museum.
