LIVE - 00.01 GMT - MARCH 1ST to 00.00 GMT -MARCH 29TH 2019

Counting down to #Brexit - do you feel heard? 
 
Have your say by adding your voice to a major new public artwork: 
+44… Leave a Message for Europe
 
The artist invites you to become part of a permanent archive of public opinion at this pivotal moment in history. Everyone is welcome and we want you to share what you feel. However, this project is about free speech, not hate speech. 
 
During this period the artist will install a sculpture, inspired by a 90s phone box, on Dungeness beach. 
 
Located at UK’s most south-easterly point, the inactive phone box acts as a beacon. It is a nostalgic call to action – a reminder of the way we once communicated - with the nuance of the voice. 
 
Exposed to the elements, the sculpture also represents the UK, facing new challenges and an uncertain future. Visit the sculpture in person or view it streamed live here, 24-7, as it is altered daily by its environment - and as we count down to B-day.

I've made me like a more interesting version myself but I got complacent I took you for granted and started focusing on your floors of soda to make things better I hate the we just had a very special I'm sorry I didn't realise until it's too late I'm sorry my mum so so stupid when you're asking for me to stay with you please give me another chance let's talk please like me again

Tim Noble 53
Hello this is Tim Noble this a beautiful idea of Joe Sweeney's a collection of human voices a mass archive of conscious humans its like recording a moment i time yet here i am sort of confused about what to say, it appears on mass you feel to unsure to commit your opinion too it s easy when your down the pub or sending a text message. But an actual voice to leave your voice its too terrifying it seems. Why isn't it taking off this idea hundreds of thousands of us should be joining in, build this momentum it should be played out of speakers and rocks around this septic isle so what are the real facts they change and distort. Maybe this is how we got into this fucking mess in the first place? None of us knew what we were signing up for and were none the wiser. If we leave the European Union we'll have to deal with America so expect jaffa oranges... Artists have always thrived in times of adversity. Hold on tight, I think ill go for a midnight swim

David Benson 57
Hello this is David here I’m calling to say that … I don’t know which way to go on Brexit I talk to someone who’s pro leaving and I believe them then I speak to someone who’s anti leaving and I think well sounds right too. So it all leads me to think of the old Tommy Cooper joke where he… about the man who walks into a pub and orders a pint of beer and drinks it down and turns to the right and says ‘ you’re a bunch of fools’ and turns to left and says ‘you’re a bunch of idiots’ and walksout. And the next night he does the same thing, orders a pint of beer drinks it down turns to the right and says ‘ you’re a bunch of fools’ and turns to left and says ‘you’re a bunch of idiots’ and walks out. And then the next night he walks in again and does the same thing and a man at the bar says ‘I’m not havin’ that, I’m gonna tell ‘im’ and the man drinks his pint down and says ‘ you’re a bunch of fools…You’re a bunch of idiots’ and the man says ‘I’m not an idiot’ and so he says ‘get over her with the fools then’…That very unfunny joke by the way I told, it was very unfunny does remind me of this situation, I don’t know who the fools and who the idiots are so I’m gonna wait for the best thing to happen, I believe it’s all gonna work out miraculously well one way or another because that’s human nature. And I would only say one more thing that I think people need to make the distinction between the people of Europe who we all love and bureaucracy of Europe who maybe we’re not so sure about and then will be much clearer. Thank you very much and goodnight and good luck!

at the time my Britain is leaving the European Union is the time that Europe need us the most because without Britain Europe is nothing without Europe Britain is nothing together we have a shared common interests which I found this together for the past 40 + years you must remember that in times of need we must depend on each other and show each other acts of kindness and gratitude order to strengthen who we are as people and that is why we should work as closely as possible with Europe and our people and the rest of the world to thank you

Tina 57
when we voted back in the 1970s to join the EU like now it was uncharted waters personally I don't think we've ever really embrace Union we are one of the few countries that have opted to keep her own currency and not the Euro we do nothing but moan about being dictated to majority have voted to leave now and I just wish we could get on with it and I for one will be happy to never hear the word brexit again

I cannot believe I'm a witness of one of the most catastrophic Constitution of disaster clearly aimed to bring the UK back into the Dark Ages I've always support to the UK is a shining example of democracy impact of positive all the countries throughout these past two years I've been observing blanks Japanese art to lack of plans and above all the government inability to admit this brexit thing is founded on a massive bunch of lies and mains lead expectations 2 years of populist political batteries which has transformed this country into an international laughing stock perching on a cliff overlooking a dream turning into the darkest nightmare

Vivienne Westwood 77
Vivienne Westwood. Brexit is a crime. Along time a go I was once on a jury about the police versus two little rockers walking home late one night who got pulled in because a motorbike had been stolen. And the judge said he wanted a majority of at least 10. He didn’t say 7 out of 12 nor even 6.1. Brexit statistics were 51.9 versus 48.1 percent. On these grounds Theresa May a responsible government would now admit the crime and cancel it…that’s it.
Gillian Maguire 27
Je ne sais pas quoi dire. Je n’ai pas les mots, ni en Français ni en Anglais, pour m’éxprimer. C’est difficile de savoir comment ce sentir pendant une période comme cela, d’incertitude, où nous sommes tous perdus, déçus, confus. Qu’est ce qu’on est supposé à faire maintenant, nous les jeunes, qui veulent vous donner la main, continuer à faire l’amour avec vous, et maintenir cette relation; laquelle mâlheureusement on a jamais apprécié jusqu’à maintenant. La seule chose qu’on puisse faire pour rester ensemble c’est de continuer à partager nos idées, partager la musique, la poésie, la litérature; tout ce qui nous rend humain. S’il vous plait pardonnez nous. Sans question on a toujours été un pays arrogant, mais j’éspère que cette farce sera au moins une leçon d’humilité. Je sais que je n’ai rien dis de profond ou de particulièrement politique, mais je pense que c’est dans ces moments là qu’on dois parler de la part de nos coeurs et non pas de nos cerveaux. Malgré tout cela, pour de raisons inconnues, j’ai encore de l’éspoir. Et c’est a cette éspoir que je vais m’accrocher, comme je veux m’accrocher à vous, toujours.

I watch the result from the referendum and I was unwell in disbelief I was absolutely devastated and now I'm watching everything was going on and I just wish it would go away I don't want to leave
Steve 32
hiya I just wanted to say I'm sorry when the referendum came around it didn't believe we get the result we did and I didn't do enough my nan voted to leave because she missed being able to buy New Zealand lamb furthermore to convince her about the real reasons why brexit is such a bad idea about the been one more and if the 17 million people who voted to stay at done that we wouldn't be in this situation right now so I'm really sorry I'm still hopeful stay I miss you I miss you a lot away
Jonathan Frost 47
the real tragedy is that brexit was never really about the EU we live in a sort of profound age of social and economic injustice which has largely been caused by decisions been made in Westminster not in Brussels but brexit was a useful distraction from that fact and I can get on the we'll come to regret
