Messages is an interactive, performative installation by SMFA alumnus Faith Johnson. The audience is invited to play the rims of water filled glasses, creating eerie and beautiful sounds that fill the space with wordless information. This wide-spread, unstructured sound is reminiscent of prayer, and other ways in which people collectively reach out to communicate with the unknown.

This event took place September 17–18, 2011 during the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art Opening.

A Special Thanks to Ryan Hawk and Tyler Smith.
