I made ‘Lips’ for an exhibition called Fables from the Threshold curated by S1T2 in Sydney.
Speech is the fundamental and powerful tool for making change. Consciously monitored spoken words can change people’s attitude towards us, how our society functions or even how we perceive our own selves. We often don’t realize how much our words weight and the impact it has on others and on ourselves. Spoken words only exist for a fraction of a time but their meaning and the feelings they cause can linger in our memory infinitely. This work is a visual metaphor of this phenomena. It’s a voice activated ever changing digital mandala that evolves when spoken to and then fades away. Choose your words wisely!
