everything is not the same

Lana Lin. everything is not the same, 2000.

Description:
"everything is not the same" utilizes speech recognition software and psychoanalysis as colliding systems that categorize and condition human behavior. The case study of Anna O., whose hysterical symptoms included a unique speech disorder, is dictated to a computer that generates a transcript that is both frustrating and revelatory. This project examines the way subjects modify their behavior in order to be recognized by systems at large, from social interactions to confrontations with technology, when sometimes only the struggle to communicate remains from the exchange.
