coded mind
Sound work, 2012
Excerpt








Our daily use of the internet is governed by all kinds of codes. Both on the computer and the smartphone, accessing the WWW is just one “click” away. Coded mind focuses on the keyboard as a pathway from the private to public sphere. The piece begins with the typing and saving of personal, diary-like notes and deals with the sound that is generated by using the keyboard - the process of recording something and the possibility of its publication. The rhythm of the writer’s thoughts is acoustically recorded and uploaded to the internet (http://soundcloud.com/mira-h). Through the virtual documentation of the private sphere, it acquires a (supposed) meaning. In the second phase of the work, the flow of thoughts is typed and recorded once again while playing the uploaded sounds. The act of typing becomes a mirror for the media.
