  Work Details  
  This work was related to the embodied sound installation, Cecis N'est Pas Une Pipe which was open at the same time. The pipe on the box is a cast of the work on exhibit at the MCA at that time. It also refers to and inverts the gender of the Magritte painting Les Deux Mysterand#65533;. Inside the box was a recording of a woman's voice, pitch lowered to sound like a man's. The text was by Kathleen Mary Fallon was of a Vietnam Veteran talking to a prostitute. The sound volume was low and the ear had to be placed on the end of the pipe to hear it.
