Don’t Listen to These Words

Don’t listen to these words, 2018-19
Don’t listen to these words takes two modes of engaging with written text – reading, and narration – and explores the assumptions built into listeners’ relationship with spoken language, and connections and dissonances between real and virtual sounds. In the work, the listener’s reading and a narrator’s reading of a text diverge and converge, guide and distract, inviting the listener to reflect on the role and reality of imagination in listening, and the voice/s they use with and for themselves.
