Speech as Text

The spoken and written word belong to different levels of communication. By translating speech into text the work explores the relationship between these two components. Each line represents a second; the size of the images is also based on the duration of time for which each image was showed in the video. The text is from the American lexicographer Erin McKean entitled ‘The Joy of Lexicography’. (TED, 2007)
