'The Inner Voice', 2017
Alison Ballard

05:08 minutes

80% of people hear an inner voice when they read. It helps us to understand and digest what we are reading but it also slows us down. Speed-reading technologies can help us to remove the inner voice but this voice may be a profound part of what it means to be human. What impact could removing it have on our cognitive abilities and our sense of self? In this short text-based video, Ballard invites us to do battle with our own inner voice, to experience life without it, while musing upon its significance within our own lives.

She is exhibiting with: Hazel Brill, Nikhil Vettukattil and Sam Williams.

Exhibition dates: 20 January to 22 April 2018
