Package in Transit, from Bloomington, Indiana, to Beverly Shores, Indiana, USA on 24th May 2021 – by Alex Chambers

“This transit began on Monday, May 24, when the recorder, a Tascam DR-07x, was put in the mail from Bloomington, Indiana, to Beverly Shores, Indiana. The recorder was apparently accidentally turned on, and the record button pressed, through a padded envelope and a layer of bubble wrap, at some point in the transit. It recorded for over twelve hours. This is a 45-minute rendering of that transit, including what we can assume to be trucks, conveyor belts, warehouse tone, and the indistinct voices of workers chatting. One way to describe this field might be that of contemporary logistics. It got to Beverly Shores pretty quickly.”
