Screenings 5: Susan Hiller

January 27 - March 20, 2020

Humanities Center Gallery, Saints Tekakwitha and Serra Hall

The Screenings series continues this spring with a single-channel video by artist Susan Hiller titled Lost and Found (2016). To create this work, Hiller gathered recordings of the voices of 23 different people—in each case the speaker of an endangered or extinct language—and used an oscilloscope to translate their speech into a vibrating green line.
