Is it a voice of comprehension, in a language that is understandable?  Maybe because there is a poetic nature to it, even a rhythm of sorts.  It could be gibberish, but the sounds of language tend to revert to the poetic nature of all things.  To me that would lead to a pattern of the Fibonacci series in which the pattern of language is construed as a pattern of understanding by tone.  As with the underlying principals of mathematics in nature, we all have an inert understanding of emotions expressed in voice.On the other note it sounds like the voice in the movie twin peaks in which the individual speaks backwards and when you play back the movie in reverse you can hear the words correctly.

The overall content is of short narratives depicting different definitions or themes of cities.  But why here, why after following this link, it is just a link to a yellow notepad with lines and type that dose not adhere to the spacing.  Maybe it is just that the poetic nature of the experience, the read is telling of different places of inhabitants.  The descriptions are vague without location but yet from our dreams and visions one can self determine the places that they may be for each of these cities.  The depictions of thought, of experience as in the “sense of place” to describe the cities, they are excellent in writing and enjoyable to read.

In a self-interview about her art and influences. She does “different things” she says, she describes her style by quoting a writer “Michael Trow” in which he describes two grids, but there are many grids that hold culture together, but the significant grid is the middle distance grid and that has now disappeared.  Which is only the individual grid and the mass media grid in which the comparison to art is by mass product approval such as with the artists in American Idol. Therefore the biggest artists are now products.  But they are a product of being one as an individual is to the society how is it that we as one relate to each other of the society at large. And most importantly what is the relationship to others and what is the relationship to yourself.  The interview is actually a public service for the website www.droppingknowledge.org
