Local Report 2012
Local Report 2012 is the latest version of a performance concept initiated by Robert Whitman in 1972 that involved “reporters” throughout New York City making calls over pay phones and submitting reports that were subsequently broadcast over a local radio station. Throughout the years, Whitman’s performances moved from pay phones to cell phones, and in 2005, to video cell phones. The newest incarnation of the project, exclusively featured on Creative Time Reports, will be greatly expanded in scope to include “reporters” around the world and incorporate new Local Report software.
