Voice box

I have an interest in language and speech. I find myself in an endless search of understanding the process of speaking and communicating through translating it into different mediums. A process that starts from the tension and pressure in the cavities of the body which produce sound and lead to shaping the human nature through speaking and communicating. It's one of these fundamental elements of speaking that 'Voice box' is trying to capture, documenting and containing in a box, every single movement of the mouth during speech production. 'Voice box' stands as an 'object of time', an attempt to contain the ephemerality of speech in a physical space.

  • I have a fascination with experimentation that comes through research and my work often takes a poetic approach. Usually I am more interested in the process than the finished object. As the journey to the outcome of a project is such an important aspect to my work, ideas around mapping, recording, time, space, and experience are often also its subject. Other themes stem from personal questioning, small things that I come across in everyday life or things that keep me up at night. I work across mediums and these are usually photography, graphic design, object-making and installation and moving image.
