Liberating the Voice: Owning, Exploring, and Knowing Sound

How much of a role does sound play in identity formation? Who "owns" sound? Growing up deaf, Christine Sun Kim felt that she was disconnected from the sounds she made, and further disconnected from those around her. By taking an new approach to creating and experiencing sound, she opens up the possibility of liberating the voice. In her interactive presentations, Kim develops a polyphonic approach to understanding the role sound and spoken language plays in our lives. By using technology and her art practice to give her a "voice," Kim harnesses drawings, performances, installations, workshops, and talks to bring her voice alive and break down the walls between us.
