short work description:
A live performer’s voice controls the mix of six pre-recorded voices and images. Sculpting sound and light to explore an ecstatic space of unsaying. For the net art remix, each click reloads a new collaged animation and audio. The animations and audio are generative, so each iteration is slightly different.
