‘Gossip is craft. It is a traditional art form of unofficial speakers, a genre of transivity and a species of knowledge that pulls passion, desire and the common will of its comprised people into the narrative; [it is about a shared] intimacy between teller, listener, talker, friend, whisperer, comrade, caller, collaborator.’ (Holly Pester, Witchy Methodologies conference, ICA, 2017)

‘Eavesdropping isn’t just about big data, surveillance and security. We all overhear. Listening itself is excessive. We cannot help but hear too much, more than we mean to. Eavesdropping, in this sense, is the condition – or the risk – of sociality per se, so that the question is not whether to eavesdrop, but the ethics and politics of doing so. This project pursues an expanded definition of eavesdropping therefore, one that includes contemporary mechanisms for listening-in but also activist practices of listening back, that is concerned with malicious listenings but also the responsibilities of the earwitness.’ (Joel Stern, Liquid Architecture, and James Parker, Melbourne Law School, 2018)
