MEEVOERENDE KLANKINSTALLASIE

’n Fees van klank om die mens se diversiteit en kulturele rykdom en Suid-Afrika se verskeidenheid tale te vier. Te veel stemme dryf mense uitmekaar: ons krag deur diversiteit word nie in dié land – of die wêreld – gevier nie. En tog … diversiteit stel spesies, kulture en stelsels in staat om te oorleef, aan te pas en te floreer. Altesaam 66 individuele, digitale stemme word na ’n enkele luidspreker gestuur.

 

IMMERSIVE SOUND INSTALLATION

An audio celebration of humanity’s diversity and cultural richness, and South Africa’s languages. Too many voices drive people apart: our strength through diversity in this country – if not the world – is not celebrated. And yet … diversity enables species, cultures, and systems to survive, adapt, and thrive. A total of 66 discrete digital voices are routed to a single speaker.
