Voice Reading, Mail to: examines the idea of the absence as an audiovisual narrative installation. A mechanical voice supplements the human presence and narration and plays a role of interpreter. The voice reads about a human relation and conversation with the self. The narrative explores geographic reference, environmental cycles, and the conditions that dictate situations such as illegal immigration through coastal area, political boundaries, and issues of identity. Crossing connections with the audience on actual problems, and the role of media on the cultural discourse.
