This Is Not My Voice Speaking: Ant Hampton and Britt Hatzius
Sept 30 - Oct 12: Temple Bar Gallery and Studios
This Is Not My Voice Speaking considers the phenomenon of recorded voices and images and asks how our relationship to them is changing as they shift to a more solid state.
The audience, re-named One and Zero, enter a room and find it filled with devices: a turntable, a slide projector, a 16mm film. To some they will be old friends, to others completely alien. Digital tourists in an analogue arcade, One and Zero are led through this interactive installation by a guide that alternates between human voice, written manual and recordable media.
In the pressing of a button, the dragging of a finger to slow a record and in the unsettled clatter of so many frames of film passing per second, the audience-performer will find themselves closer to the clumsiness and limitations of their own not-so-digital bodies.
This is a non-seated performance.
Commissioned by Vooruit (Gent) for Almost Cinema 2011.
