Box Fans /( Borrowed, Real, and Virtual ) \

I’m addicted to white noise. I can’t sleep without it, or concentrate without it, and if I can’t have a box fan in my room, I use a digital box fan on YouTube. And I’m not alone; millions of noise addicts like me purchase these mass-produced, disposable fans or haunt the YouTube channels of other noise addicts for the best new noise. I’m currently very into a brown/pink noise composer on YouTube. For this work, I borrowed fans from fellow white noise geeks, and invited them to view the installation which also included a box fan video, during a period when McGuffey Art Center was closed for two weeks.
