VOICEBOX

Voice Box was a live audio installation created inside the SHOWstudio premises over the festive period by the SHOWstudio viewer base. Reliant upon audience participation for its success, the project asked viewers to make a voice or sound recording via telephone which was then ‘tied’ to the time it was submitted and repeated at that time each day from 23 December 2005—3 January 2006. This gradually produced a collaborative, time-based sound work. The project started as a ‘blank sheet’ on the Friday the SHOWstudio team broke for Christmas and built up as viewers’ voices started to fill the void of the repeating, one-day timeframe. The piece played simultaneously inside the empty studio and as well as being broadcast from the SHOWstudio website.
