Talking Heads

Talking Heads was a sound art installation located in the atrium of the art building at the University of New Mexico. Each mannequin head was hung facing the entrance of the building and was fitted with a speaker. All the heads were connected to a small amplifier with a motion sensor and
a sound circuit. Whenever someone walked in front of the piece the heads talked.

The sound byte was changed every few hours for several days. The clips ranged from whispers to yelling accusations. Unfortunately I don’t have very good documentation of this piece. I still have all the heads though which means I’ll probably install it again.
