Graphics Speak is a project about translating visual elements to sound, as it consists of a collection of graphical patterns that can be turned into audible experience.
Each archetype has its own composition made by mixing them on a turntable. The installation is contextualized within a darkroom, by broadcasting live video recording of the graphics on an analog television, where the transmitted electromagnetic waves are translated into sound through using a sensor. Therefore in this case, what you hear is what you see.
