Although most of the people still think of the telephone as a great invention which makes communication a lot more easier, the project Allo, Allo points to certain possibilities of technological harassment - other than teleshopping. Klif's analog-digital installation randomly calls unfortunate phone owners in order to connect the acoustic environments of two spaces – exhibition space and private, anybody's space. When this communicational channel opens the dialed people are 'forced' to interact with the art space, while the visitors become someone to talk to. Thus, technology offers simultaneously a possibility of a pleasant chat with a lonely person or a possiblity to turn the person on the line into a harrasment victim.
