Installation view. Sound on headphones. Chelsea College of Art, June 2004.
This is an environment for the viewer to experience language as a virtual world of abstract sounds and symbols in its visual and audible representation. It is a sound and video installation of the process of writing based on how to be able to fill in a space, such as a page. The image of writing created becomes quite textural, producing what looks like a knitted surface. Underneath the white background there are English pronunciation sounds. Interested in the notion of internal and external sounds as a representation of our own speech which, linked to the idea of emotional and learnt languages. The audio part of the piece consits of 'meaningless' phonetic sounds as the basic elements used in speech and external sounds such as conversations, TV and radio to create soundscapes of variable pitch and strength.
