America Says Hello, 2015

"America Says Hello" is a long term project in which custom software running on a server automatically dials every single number in the United States of America once.
When the calls are answered the call recipient hears only silence.
The calls are streamed to a website where the attempted calls, and occasional answered calls, can be listened to in real time.

Below is a video demo of the project. The actual project is live (and will be for the next 2000 years) at www.americasayshello.org.
 
 

 
The project has been show at ICA Miami and at Mana Wynwood as part of the III Points Festival of Music, Art and Technology.
