artist brief:

This installation provides a space in which two people can manipulate one another’s voice by hand as they carry on a conversation. In the installation, each person sits in front of a mic that is hooked up to digital effects units in front of the person opposite. The effects units are hooked up to amplification which is set to a level slightly higher than the the level of the participants’ actual voices. Each participant plays with the setting and levels of the effects units in front of them as they chat. The wall behind the area they sit in is painted with a color that has been matched to the color of one of the digital effect units. Furniture was found at the exhibition space.
