Disembodied Voices (2004)

Disembodied Voices is a meditation on the nature of public space. It is a visual representation of how different bodies communicate across space, using cell phones as a metaphor for the new translocal of connected, yet disembodied voices, linked across space invisibly - forming an unseen network of wanderers, always within reach yet nowhere in sight. This site illustrates the collision of the personal/private and public space. As the line between public and private continues to blur intimate transactions have become audible to anyone within earshot. Where we are, in a sense, no longer matters since we are always connected. Using the cell phone as a metaphor, this project connects users and investigates the changing nature of public space into a wirelessly connected translocal, where each person is a node in the network.
