'One way message' is an installation with 64 telephone-receivers hanging in a room. In the receivers one can hear messages that don't allow communication whatsoever. E.g. there's a very angry Spanish girl raving at the listener, an Italian sex line, an engaged signal etc. Walking around, one can hear the incomprehensible hum of voices. As soon as one listens at a receiver, an individual message can be heard.
