Agnès Geoffray's Night Vision

Night #3 (2005), to be shown in an exhibition opening May 15 at Phoenix Halle, Dortmund, Germany, called "'Awake Are the Only Spirits - On Ghosts and Their Media." The notice includes a great quote:

make any text speed it up slow it down run it backwards inch it and you will hear words that were not in the original recording new words made by the machine different people will scan out different words of course but some of the words are quite clearly there and anyone can hear them words which were not in the original tape but which are in many cases relevant to the original text as if the words themselves had been interrogated and forced to reveal their hidden meanings
(Attributed to William S. Burroughs, The Invisible Generation.) More info about the exhibition here.
