The voices

Due to the artist living in two different countries and has two mother tongues, she decided to create a bilingual interactive sound documentary. The stories might not be important to the audience or they might not be able to relate to them, but it is a way for the artist to find out more information about her family which can be passed on easily to the next generation. As the stories are related by the original people, they will retain their validity and authenticity withstanding the test of time.
