Voz Alta Video and Prototype, 2009
1x150W Xenon light, modified megaphone, computer, live FM low power Radio transmission, transistor radio; 16 min 19 seconds, HD video with stereo sound
Edition of 3
The prototype is the same Megaphone as was used in the public art piece in 2008, except it has been modified to incorporate a powerful xenon searchlight inside, so that when a participant speaks into it, his or her voice gets converted into light flashes. An FM radio transmitter allows transistor radios to hear exactly what the light is saying: be it live participation or archival material from the memorial.
