Speak0ut uses the title ‘Life is Beautiful’ from the Ottawa 2012
Nuit Blanche Festival as a beginning point to discuss the role of
optimism and our search for happiness, in a chaotic and turbulent
world. Speak0ut functions as a large pill box containing oversized
pills; curator pill, god pill, art pill, painter pill. Sound files of
recordings from a pharmaceutical lab, where various chemicals
are produced, are overlaid with spoken word text and singing
voices that engage the viewer in a conversation about pollyanna
and our modern day fixation on ‘happiness’ in all its forms. The
public are asked to contribute to this conversation by sending their
feed back to facebook at Cube gallery
