A mute monologue by Ari Teperberg
I'm standing in front of you with my eyes closed.
I write on a blank document.
If you listen closely you can hear me talk, though you don't hear my voice.
The soft rhythm of my typing keeps us connected.
The letter follows letter as my fingers dance on the keyboard, tracing a maze of thoughts, lost voices, memories, and distant views.
A solo performance in a Google Doc document, amusedly and poignantly shifting through the web of relations between voice, identity, technology, memory and loss.
