o you remember playing Telephone as a child? Whispering a message to the kid next to you, who then passed it on.
Until, finally, a completely altered message becomes the collective result!
Nathan Langston, Seattle host and curator, invites you and the Human Hotel community to take part in an art version of Telephone. In this game, the message is whispered from art form to art form, so a painting becomes a poem, and then a film, and then music, and so on.

So far, about 300 creators have signed up from 40 countries and we’ve passed the message about 1,614,371 kilometers or a million miles. Nathan expects the final exhibition of these interconnected works will include 500 to 1000 artists – and we would love to have you play!
