Join This is a Voice artist Anna Barham for her live production reading groups.
This participatory work will observe how language can corrupt and proliferate when communicated between different bodies and technologies. Participants will read a selected text only for an Artificial Intelligence to intervene, interpret, and deliver a new version to the next reader. The result is a human/machine interaction and text production, where syntax and meaning ebb and flow in unpunctuated blocks that are momentarily fixed in their performance.
About This is a Voice
Contemplate the power of voice before and beyond words and explore the human voice in this immersive exhibition.
Experience the human voice, how it locates us socially, geographically and psychologically, and learn how the voice is utterly flexible and can be altered with treatment and training.
Designed as an acoustic journey, delve inside vocal tracts, restless minds and speech devices to discover how meaning and emotions are conveyed through the patterns of rhythm, stress and intonation.
Blending theatre, video, visuals and sound, This is a Voice presents works by artists and vocalists, punctuated by paintings, manuscripts, medical illustrations and ethnographic objects.
