My work is cinematic and performative. When the exhibition is not the medium itself, I use my own voice – amplified – as another channel to address the forces of production at stake in a moment of attention. Language is a primary material. Voice is the point of singularization of meaning. Machines are the vehicles. A matter of tuning.
