My Voice (for personal computer and microphone) (2003)

Reading is a retraction between the author's voice (what is written) and my interior voice. When I read a book, I read it with my silent voice. The author's voice becomes familiar (interior), my voice becomes stranger. Reading is between these two voices.

The spectator enters in a dark room. A small light indicates the presence of a microphone. The spectator approaches of the microphone and begin to speak to see if something happens.

His voice triggers violent flash of light and makes appear of words. These words link together and construct sentences, a whole book that is at every different time.

To read the text the spectator must speak, his voice and the voice of the "author" mix themselves; they synchronize and desynchronize. What is the relation between the speech and the writing?
