In 2009, I asked a few friends studying in Santa Barbara (CA) to choose a short text of any kind, preferably in their native language.
Each of them was filmed while copying the chosen text by hand and then I recorded their voices reading the same text.
The following portraits are made of their writing hands and speaking voices, variously processed. Please click on the signatures to watch the videos.
