Title: Talking Parking Meters
Artists: Jim Green assisted by Ryan Elmendorf
Installation: May 2017
Artist Jim Green’s sound art is designed to humanize public space by playfully introducing unexpected sounds into the environment. Talking Parking Meters is an interactive audio artwork located at the Eastbridge Town Center Plaza. This public art installation consists of three parking meters that play recorded audio clips. A motion sensor activates the sounds when a person approaches the meters. One meter plays spoken greetings, another nature sounds, and the third transportation sounds. He was assisted in the project by Ryan Elmendorf and his team.
