We Are Here
Lucy Powell

The video installation »We Are Here« consists of a Flash animation (6 min loop) of two talking cat heads each projected onto the wall or a high board so that the heads of the cats are roughly on a level with those of the viewers. The cats lip-sync the words of a text written by the artist and then take a brief nap. The voices are the artist s own but imitate the intonation of artificial speech and pitched respectively higher or lower. The cats, which have different coloured eyes, are the mirror image of one another but they are animated individually so their movements differ. Their words localise intelligence and feeling in unknown time and bodies.
