Place Name - 2014

Two microphones, each one fixed on a floor stand and positioned in opposition to the other, have a reversal of function. Given a voice, both microphones read names out in unison. Each ‘pair’ of names is the same person – one being their original ‘birth’ name and the other their new ‘anglicised’ name. As the microphones simultaneously list both names of prominent cultural figures, the installation traces different accents from around the globe. Mixed media and looped audio (approximate running time of each cycle 9 minutes).
