YES! & ONOMATOPOEIA


What is a voice without language?


YES!  a 60-page graphic novel addresses autism and the politics of representation via the story of an autistic man whose voice is sanctioned as ‘non-verbal’ and who sings professionally.


ONOMATOPOEIA video installation featuring the portrait of Kyle’s voice. When a voice does not conform, what kind of expectations are projected onto it? In the soundtrack are woven field recordings of echolalia, language based and non language based singing, expressivity, non-verbal communication, constituting a alternative narrative of what we mean by voice.


This projects is conceived as a catalyst for discussion and its elements are used in lectures and cross-disciplinary debates.
