Object-like beings appear on six monitors, all of them speaking at the same time. Their bodies are like stone formations or strange meteorites, while their language is human, banal, and quotidian. This is a babble of voices from original audio tracks on real video streams: texts from real people, who point the cameras at themselves and express their feelings, which they share online at any time with anyone and no one in particular. Esther Hunziker borrows these “feelings” from the nonstop stream of global networks and gives the language new bodies. She calls her hybrid beings “specimens,” so-called scientific paradigms, which she conserves and presents as “foreign” objects on the monitors.
