This project will be part of my MFA thesis exhibition at the CMA Gallery. 'Songlines' is a piece that explores the idea of language as a poetic and necessary means to structure new metaphors. The viewer will interract with a 'landscape' which has photosensors embedded in it. As they move their body parts or shadows across the landscape, they will trigger the production of individual phonemes from the English language. By coordinating their movements, they will be able to produce language that is familiar or novel, depending upon the arrangement of established symbols.
