Electronic Ghosts - A ongoing experiment to contact the ghost of Michael Jackson.
The installation Electronic Ghosts uses modern methods of EVP researchers, specifically the 'Speech Synthesis Method', such as that developed by German EVP researcher and software designer Stefan Bion. In this method, the spiritual entity is given auditive 'aids' of raw audio material cut up into small segments. By influencing the order of these, the communicating entity can subsequently form words with which to communicate with living beings. Auditive material sourced exclusively from samples of Michael Jackson reinforces the channels of communication and those with hearing tuned to identify EVP may make out words, phrases or messages.
