The Lamentation (2013)

In The Lamentation, the Greek chorus is re-imagined as an endless array of targeted twitter scrapers given form and voice through 3d modeling and text-to-speech. Each head has a different voice and a different tag which shapes the tweets it searches for and reads, simple tags like “i hate it when…” or “i feel so alone…”. What emerges is a funny but sort of horrifying monument to the collective banality, tragedy, and posturing which we plaster all over social media.

The Lamentation was exhibited at the Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity in 2013 as part of a performance night duringĀ Interventions – Literary Practices on the Edge.
