LAYLAYNAY
May 2007

Laylaynay dwells on the daily usage of actions: reading and listening. It tells a story that was first uttered verbally and transcribed later, which stretches a minute story to five minutes. While it forces the spectator to adjust to a slow pace, it hints to how easily we consume words. Since once an oral story is now shown in written format, the subject of the story (the voice) gets lost. The video doesn’t contain the character’s voice, but the way her voice is conveyed by those around her.
