Public Diary Calls For Voicemails From Strangers
Jeff Lam’s Voicemail Diaries project asks strangers to contribute an entry to an audio diary by leaving an anonymous voicemail of private thoughts.
Art director and artist Jeff Lam is intrigued by strangers. In 2011, he created a video – The Nicest Place on the Internet – which anyone who was feeling blue could watch to receive a virtual hug from strangers. Now, he has set up Voicemail Diaries, a new online project where people call an actual phone number and leave a voicemail in response to Lam’s series of questions.
