Pre-order your Vocode drawing
Every day a unique drawing is created by the Vocode machine in the exhibition Not in so many words in Museum Kröller-Müller. The 100×100 cm drawings are made based on languages that are on the verge of extinction and signed with their unique number, language and region.
When a language is lost, the connection that people have with a specific place and its community weakens. For Not in so many words in Kröller-Müller, Fillip Studios selected 86 languages from the UNESCO atlas of the world’s languages in danger, including Éven, Chantal, Trumai, Waima’s and Savosavo.
The Canorgraphy technique used for this installation was developed by Meerman in 2014 and converts sound into a graphic image. In Vocode, speaking the language not only makes the air vibrate, but also a special pen that dances over lines of the frequenties. This makes a sound not only audible, but also visible.
You can pre-order a specific drawing of a language now. We will send you the drawing at the end of the exhibition in June 2020. A custom made frame with protective glass is optional. Pre-order now.
