In the sixth and final workshop of our Life Rewired inspired Design Yourself project, our young creatives worked with artist and writer Erica Scourti.

Erica shared her practice with the group and explored Optical Character Recognition software and speech to text translation processes, to interrogate how identity and human understandings are influenced by these now everyday filters.

Cosima Cobley Carr worked with fellow member and composer Pietro Bardini on a soundscape using a sax line shared by Nayla Chouaib. The video shows us phone portraits of Vangelis Trichias along with Cosima, lip-syncing along with text to speech software. Pietro Bardini created the backing soundscape by taking Nayla Chouaib's saxaphone recording and taking it through several layers of resonators, reverbs and distortions.
