What If This Were A Place? (2014)
Non-linear Audio Poem

Reclaimed Keyboard, Speakers, Powerbook G4, Keyboard Mapping Software, Applescript, “Victoria” Dictation, Wood, Sand.


What If This Were A Place? was a response to a call for work for University at Buffalo’s Cradle To Grave II show, which focused on reclaimed technology. The keyboard was repurposed to trigger lines of poetry spoken by an automated voice called Victoria. The work poses a hypothetical question about gender identity- what if it were visible, like a landscape?
