Voices Un/Heard

The sound piece, designed by the BriCollab Art Collective, includes voices of the New School community which were recorded on campus through a “democracy box” edited together, which will be reenacted by a symbolic performance realized by volunteers on March 23, 2012.

Designed by BriCollab Art Collective: Mert Izcan, Piril Gunduz, Daniel Kim, Cem Kocyildirim, 2012

Voices, thoughts, ideas, comments, and complaints about OWS and what OWS stands for are collected in sound and text form and edited together. The result is first recognizable and then cacophonous. During the performance, the performers, using OWS’s methodologies like ‘human microphone’ and ‘progressive stack’ in a rotating choreography will make the voices heard. Cacophony is the criticism of OWS – their methodologies that we borrow is limited in its ability to give voice- one thing to be aware and avoid is to create the illusion of the voices are reaching out.
