Installation: sound, custom software, electronics and physical interfaces. Production: LABoral

This is the fourth instalment in an ongoing series of Labor Camp Study RoomsStudy Room: D consists of four all-mounted panels with physical interfaces allowing the users to meander through a vast database of historical voice recordings from throughout the 20th century, including Mao, Stalin and Hitler, as well as September 11 and the Iraq War. Constructed with custom software, hardware and various electronics, the work offers an opportunity for both the study as well as manipulation of archival audio artefacts. Study Rooms are often presented in relation to other Labor Camp projects, and Study Room: D provides direct references and insight into the White Star Cluster installation.
