Event description
Shell Song asks what a voice is worth, who can own a human sound, and how it feels to come face to face with the ghost of your body

About this event

Join us on Zoom at lunchtime for our regular ODI Fridays talks. Once you've signed up, we'll send you the link to join.

Meet Everest Pipkin, the creator of Shell Song. Everest will talk about the creative, technical, and research process behind making Shell Song, ODI's commissioned work from Everest Pipkin for the Fall 2020 Rules of Engagement exhibition.

From ancient automatons and golems to deep-fake clones and prison-industrial technologies, Shell Song asks what a voice is worth, who can own a human sound, and how it feels to come face to face with a ghost of your body that may yet come to outlive you.
