Whisper // audio installation, 2008

Whisper is an audio work installed in the entire exhibition space of the EXPO 2.0 event at De Fabriek (Rotterdam, NL) in june 2008.

Whisper lingers in the exhibition space listening to visitors walking and talking. It registers sounds and tries to talk back, resynthesizing the sounds it grabbed. But its appearance is ghostly: invisible and ethereal. Can people distinguish its calls from the background noise?
