"Promising Megaphones" consists of an iron base that supports three speakers. The base and the speakers are hidden behind rows of colorful banners. The three speakers reproduce sound. The sound from a collection of political speeches by all party leaders of the Greek parliament in the decades after the junta. The speeches are mixed together and reproduced all at the same time. The sound effect is very close to the limits of noise and the political discourse of contemporary democratic system is confused and negated into becoming sound rubbish.
