The ‘Lorem Ipsum’ of sound

IDEA: Do not look for the message. This text is an image, the words pixels, the syllables noise.

WHAT: A sound art installation exploring the infamous Latin ‘Lorem Ipsum’ text, used in publishing and editorial contexts, which allows focusing only on the visual and graphical aspects of the product. If the human ear can be compared to a radio receiver that is able to decode electromagnetic waves and recode them as sound, the human voice may be compared to the radio transmitter in being able to translate sound into electromagnetic waves.  The characteristic role of language with respect to thought is not to create a material phonic means for expressing ideas, but to serve as a link between thought and sound.

WHY: The exhibition questions the language, particularly the speech, a tool that simultaneously convey two immaterial phenomena: the thought and the sound.
