Installation commissioned by The Tramway, Glasgow in 1993 as a part of the "Work From a Residency" exhibition. Vinyl text on wall - quotes from the Oliver Sacks book "Seeing Voices". A doorway leads to a room with two 16mm loops, back-projected on screens on either side of the room. The 16mm film loops show an adult signing simple signs in British Sign Langauge and a child signing her first words in British Sign Language. A computer generated animation shows the path that the signers' arms movements followed. The installation was made with the help of Derek Scanlan - 16mm camera, Adam Gill - computer generated animation, Poppy Smith and Moira McAuslan - Signers.
