Widower

Recorded voice and text, 2017

This work looks at the role of punctuation in speech. Two accents are used; a woman from North Edinburgh, a woman from West London. Their cadence and pace tell the same story differently – an account of an observer entering a stranger's flat, picking apart the occupier's interior, succumbing to brief 'no strings attached' intercourse.

Installed on a 32" monitor at the Glue Factory, Glasgow. Each voice played out loud to the synced text, with intervals of silent text in between.
