Message in a Bottle


“Message in a Bottle” is an audio-video installation that features two monitors facing each other. One displays a slideshow of images that represent human behaviour, while the other shows a set of numbers that translate and cluster the images. The numbers are read aloud by a speech synthesiser, creating a story-like tone told in numbers. The installation aims to defamiliarise the audience with the content of the images while offering them a chance to construct meaning, resulting in a feeling of belongingness.
