Ann Hamilton - corpus objects

Recorded sound; amplifiers ; 24 bell-shaped speakers
Variable dimensions



Like (corpus · dropper), (corpus · sound) proceeded from the 2003-2004 installation corpus at Mass MoCA. This recording features all of the 24 unique voices that eminated individually from one of 24 downward facing speakers. The voices created a chorus of recordings, reading texts composed from the intersections of found fragments, phrases underlined, and slips of words, creating a layered, complex and open context through which the blankness of the paper moved.
