  • After the Tone by Finn Astle and Trent Crawford – 1,888 days are spent talking on a phone in an average Australians life. Days are only one way to quantify our modern communication. What we can’t see, what’s not captured in call time, is the space between calls; the pause before the disconnection. After the Tone is a film that interprets this space, pausing in the world as if it dropped out. Spaces left of people, inhabited by enduring machines. EXHIBITION DATES: 4-13 May, GEORGE PATON GALLERY, Second floor, Union House, University of Melbourne
