not-so-digital bodies

This is not my voice speaking

performance/installation by Ant Hampton and Britt Hatzius

Ant Hampton and Britt Hatzius take another look at the phenomenon of recorded voices and images, refuse to take them for granted and ask, implicitly, how our relationship to them is changing as they shift over to a more ‘solid state’. In pressing the button ‘now’ (more or less), in the dragging of a finger to slow the record, a bit, and in the unsettled clatter of so many frames of delicate film passing per second, ‘One’ and ‘Zero’ – that is you and me – find themselves closer to the clumsiness and steady deterioration of their own not-so-digital bodies.
