Voices wander aimlessly from space to space. Localised voices are following the signals made out of non-voice and light, modifying the meaning of its physical presence. Perhaps, the voice does not necessarily support its meaning but can be able to interrupt it. This interruption amongst voices, non-voices and light creates a symbiosis with the space.
This project began with the question: ‘what the voices in the machine does when the machine is turned off?’ A collaboration with visual artist and performer Bin Koh, starting from the conceptualisation through a written text about the power dimension between a trapped voice and the machine. With this narrative, we divided the performance into three acts. The first act starts with the training process of the voice in the machine. Then on the second act, the voice starts to react to demands by users of devices. After responding multiple demands by the machine, the exhausted voice starts to deny all the demands and be able to control the machine.
