Rachel Perry Welty takes the serendipity of accidents and converts them into an enjoyable performance.

From the archives of the ICA Boston, Welty lip-sychs messages left on her answer machine when people have dialed the wrong number. It reminds us of an age when people still had to input phone numbers manually when calling. And we imagine that there is a hugely decreased chance of reaching a wrong number these days, with the proliferation of smart phones and contact lists. It’s an interesting commentary on techno-mediation, and how with our increased levels of control over our experience, serendipity and interesting accidents may be on the decline.
