'Art today is a new kind of instrument, an instrument for modifying consciousness and organizing new modes of sensibility. And the means for practicing art have been radically extended. Indeed, in response to this new function (more felt than clearly articulated), artists have had to become self-conscious aestheticians: continually challenging their means, their materials and methods.'

The title of the work, 395-437-4680, is a Zoom meeting ID for anyone to join. The year of work, 2020, is the password. Participants can choose to make sound that would alter the speech recognition process and contribute to the reinterpretation of Susan Sontag's One Culture and New Sensibility.

「今天的藝術是一種新的工具,一種改變意識和組織新的感悟模式的工具。藝術實踐的手段也得到了根本的擴展。事實上,為了回應這種新的功能(更多的是感受而不是清晰的表達),藝術家們不得不成為有自我意識的美學家——不斷地挑戰他們的方式、材料和方法。」

作品的標題《395-437-4680》是一個供任何人加入的 Zoom 會議ID。作品的年份2020則是會議密碼。參與者可以選擇發出能夠改變語音識別過程的聲音,這將有助於重新解讀蘇珊·桑塔格的《一種文化和新感悟》。
