Yobosayo by Yang Soo-in is a public sculpture that supports the needs and wants of Korean citizens in a unique way. Although named after the common phone greeting, it takes a step away from the common use of phones when airing out grievances and concerns to the government. Instead, it takes on the form of a giant ear-shaped sculpture that people can speak into.

Although at first that might seem like a silly and unproductive thing to do, the words echoed in Yobosayo by Yang Soo-in are then played on speakers throughout the citizens’ affairs bureau in city hall. As PSFK aptly reports, "Motion sensors record how long people stand under the speakers listening to these ideas and complaints, preserving those ideas that attract people for an extend period of time."
