Ether and the Voice is a work of sciencefiction, an exploration of female voice, technology and identity. The body of work for Ether and the Voice was created
in response to the experience of living in a place and time where language, technology and electronic modes
of expression and communication are an integral part of life. We live in a culture of hybrid concepts, where technology, voice and identity are viewed as interchangeable.
Where the voice travels beyond the body,
and identity assumes a range of guises. Ether and the Voice creates a world of symbolic and linguistic fantasy.
It explores the disembodied voice, electronic manipulation, personal drama and the archetypal and psychological
structures of the interior.
