Newspeak (1996)

This digital video was constructed using appropriated imagery from a Disney film documenting a process they referred to as "Audio-Animatronics." This process enabled robotic theme park animals to speak with voices prerecorded by humans in studio sessions. In "Newspeak," the animal we see gaining the gift of speech is a dog. The original footage displays hues that are especially vibrant and unique to the Technicolor process used to develop the film.
