The Visual Voice is an ongoing collaborative research project. The work seeks to represent the attributes of emotive vocal utterances as abstracted 3D moving images and to theorise and understand how we interpret complex emotive interactive exchanges between human and machine, sound and image, vocal quality and perceived emotive intent.
