Right now, the Norton Museum is exhibiting Nick Cave’s Soundsuits.
Incredible! go see!
I was thinking. We each have our own sound suits. Over my body, I put layers of clothes. Then I roll my computer case, hang my cameras and purse around my neck, hold my keys and my phone! This is the “thing” we wear every day! Amazing how silent we are, compared to Cave’s Soundsuits!
