Voice Mosaic (2004)

Voice Mosaic is a web-art work that converges speech and image, building a visual mosaic on the web with the chosen colors and recorded voices of people who interact with it by phone from any place in the globe. The voice interface works through phone calls from any telephone - mobile or not (call (800) 289-5570 or (407) 386-2174 (in US) / PIN number: 9991421055). The mosaic is seen/heard in real time on the web at www.voicemosaic.com.br

The work’s main intention is to permit experimentation about adding “mouths” and “ears” to the internet -- which has been largely mute and deaf so far --, and also to cause thinking about media convergence and new trans disciplinary forms of interaction.
