Study of Voice in Two Parts: Form and Coming into Consciousness (2024). 2-Channel Video (running time: approx. 4.5 mins). Sound/Performance (running time: approx. 9 mins)
Voice connects to the gaze and to aural reception and response. The anamorphic images used in the video channels suggest an exploration of form; a coming into something else, a deliberate slippage that entices misrecognition and through which an alternative form is revealed. The sound and performance elements generate creative output: the predetermined text has been extracted from pieces of writing provoked by the images; a collaborative partner responds verbally to these unseen prompts locating voice as an expression of consciousness.
