super[imposing] is part of a series of works exploring the transformation of architecture using 3d graphics and projection. By using the letter frequencies of the English language (and the inverse of those frequencies) to construct “words”, this piece proposes an imagined conversation in an artificial language. The sound, which is produced by the internal speakers of the two laptops, recalls the beeps and white noise of the dial-up handshake, the original “hello world” of the Internet age. The piece is also an examination of the visual qualities of the phonetic alphabet stripped of its common function as signifier.
