Lexicology is an artist’s book and an interactive, two-person performance by Tricia Treacy and Ashley John Pigford. The book is an unbound collection of letterpress-printed cards with text excerpted from various children’s books. In our performance of this book, we shuffle the cards, hand each other half the stack, and begin reading them aloud. On our bodies we have “hand-made/D.I.Y.” headset microphones and belt-clip press-buttons. When we read a card, we press our button to record our voice into a computer system that saves our recorded voice as an audio sample. These samples are mixed, remixed, and played back through a two-channel PA system. As we record more samples, (read more pages of the book), the playback mix gets more and more layered resulting in a cacophony of voices.
