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.

about brexit leaving the European Union St John of the life you say it was to leave the EU so we went out of things we trade with would be cut down such as that mean we won't have any trees not in the European in Europe doesn't it mean it would be hard to like go to like Spain and stuff should be harder to go on holiday yeah I think so but I love my holiday

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

I do not want to go. I will work hard to get us back into Europe. Some people clearly do not know what they are about to lose.

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

I don't think it's a good idea don't do it

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
