Show Me the Face of Your Digital Voice
Life Rewired Hub, Barbican Centre
29-30 October 2019
Over the course of two days the Constellations group was based at the Life Rewired Hub exploring ideas of collaboration, co-creation and peer-to-peer learning through a workshop with Topher Campbell and a series of participatory activities.
Audiences could attend 3 unique workshops with the Constellations team where collaboration, co-creation and peer-to-peer learning were explored.
My workshop 'show me the face of your digital voice' - in collaboration with artists Dunya Kalantery and Hannah Kemp-Welch - investigated the digital voice in public space.
From virtual assistants to supermarket checkouts, the digital voice is embedded in our cities. But who does it belong to, who does it speak for and what imprint does it leave on us? We listened together in a practical workshop that tested out the strategies of these machines, participants were encouraged to create their own public announcements, placing them in specific areas of the Barbican and then observing public reaction.
