Amplified Whisper describes the special form of experiencing loneliness caused by the complex relationship of presence and distance in communication technology. However, this experience isn't a product of the latest technology; experiences and thoughts about "shattered presence", alienation and longing can be traced back to the times when telecommunication first came possible for the ordinary people.

The work is centered around the voice-over narrative of the work while the video shows a phone being dismantled by hand into as tiny particles as possible.

I see stories and narratives made by people as a great source of reflection on common experiences and feelings. The work refers to two old pop-songs and an essay about telecommunication to bring up the sentiments felt by people back in the times. These narratives are filled with longing, nostalgia and confusion caused by the non-bodily presence of technology.
