private space in a public time

private space in a public time is made from a condensed series of vocal sounds that explore communication through fragmentation. the reading, based on Vito Acconci's text Public Space in a Private Time, was recorded and edited, leaving a series of stops and starts, a slippery language of faintly recognizable utterances.

Redactions are aural in Audra Wolowiec's sound piece that intimately registers the sibilant breaks between words and the material qualities of silence.
