Human Capital Software Solutions, a conceptual software project by the Nungu collective and Signwave, Inc., takes on issues of labor, language, and psycho-geographic displacements. Opening with Blondie's song 'Call Me,' the HCSS website ironically offers solutions to problems being faced by Southern entrepreneurs (in this case, Indian) needing cheap and distributed workforces. The Human Capital Software application (beta versions available for Windows and Mac OSs) offers an audio-visual interface that puts users in the role of Indian tele-workers fielding calls from US clients. A result of playing with the software is a kind of interactive 'sound poetry' that derives meaning from the slippages between economic communication and cultural interference. - Ryan Griffis
