Their Voices

The human voice is a vibratory information system, and communication comes through resonance. Words can be untruthful, but the voice comes straight from the heart.

My project visualizes the impact of global warming in Uummannaq, a small and remote island off of Northern Greenland. It is a pristine and awe-inspiring landscape of striking beauty and purity. The local population is much affected by melting ice, as well as by ‘black winds’ which bring pollution from all over the world. 

Their Voices immerses you in the world of Inuit children, with their unspoilt emotion, unfettered intuition, and purity of intention. This new generation aspires to a Western way of life, and thus the Inuits may lose their traditions and culture.


Since making this project, two tsunamis have hit Uummannaq and Nuugaatsiaq in North Greenland. 

The children are safe but the two affected villages need support.

  • My multi-sensory installations and immersive performances draw on my background in stage design for film, dance and theatre. I feel strongly about using significant content, and I enjoy challenging the viewer’s perception of reality in a physical way. Lately I have been investigating emotion and affect in the future of new technology.
