it speaks of Others traces the impact of new technologies on the human voice to unpack the way we communicate in the post-digital world. The human voice as a material is innate, rhythmic, bodily, transitory and responsive, conveying meaning and emotion through vocal contours and intonations. We live within a cacophony of human voices, each as idiosyncratic as the next, yet while the human voice is distinctive to its speaker it is also flexible and can be altered with treatment and training. In the contemporary age of disembodied voices where machines speak back to us, the distinctions between the human voice and the automaton is increasingly uncanny. This artwork will reveal the elusive, immaterial and infinitely textured nature of the human voice through non-verbal forms of communication to re-imagine the way these sounds can be traded across bodies.
