This is a behind the scenes video of a radio interview between the Austrian public radio (ORF) and Melissa Fatoumata Touré, a non existing artist from Mali. The interview is about her WIA < > WIA project that was commissioned by the Ars Electronica Center Linz and that was shown at their 80plus1 exhibition.
Since Melissa does not exist, I am doing all communications for her. And because my voice does neither sound female, nor African, I am answering the questions of the interviewers. In a remote room, a friend of mine hears what I say via headphone and repeats every word with a fake African accent. The interviewers in Austria can only hear what she says.
