I started this series by recording myself speaking a series of ten verbs. I then took a screen shot of each as it appeared in my audio editor and imported it in to Adobe Illustrator. I vectorized the imported files and used Illustrator’s tools to edit the vectorized screen shots into new images while still retaining some trace of the originals.
For the Verbatim sound series, I exported the Verbal images from Illustrator into various file formats, imported the raw image data into my audio editor, and created new sound files from these audio interpretations of visual data. The results are sounds based in language, yet totally removed from it. By Carrie Fucile, USA
