The objective of the project is to convert speech in visual forms through specially programmed software. The voice recognitions detects the speech of visitors in the installation and does not analyse the meaning but the syntax and conventionalised phrases and converts them in the dictionary of shapes created in advance. Thus, the result is a set of data visualised as metablob systems through the technology of stereolithography and rapid prototyping. The projects was created in co-operation with the Academic Research Centre of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and a distinguished art theorist Jiří Ševčík.
The project was also presented at the exhibition Die Algorithmische Revolution in ZKM, Karlsruhe and in ICA in London.
