Agnes hegedüs :: Things Spoken [1998]

The CD-ROM work presents a selection of objects that I have collected, which have been put together so that the viewer can make an interactive exploration of both their singularities and their possible [inter]relationships. The viewer can sort these objects in various ways - by objective criteria such as size, weight, colour or function. Each object is accompanied by my spoken explication of its significance to me, where I disclose their contextual and personal properties that led me to keep these often trivial things. I have also asked a number of friends of mine to talk spontaneously about these objects, and what they have said constitutes a second parallel set of narratives to my own which the user of the CD-ROM can freely shift back and forth between.
