The Visual Voice is a mouthpiece for the marginalized----an interactive guerilla billboard--- meant to translate and mediate the personal, human scale with the greater city at large.

This ongoing public project personalizes and socializes the urban landscape, provoking a renegotiation between city and citizen. It is meant to provoke conversation as well as challenge the privatization of our visual environment.

The Visual Voice is really just a portable, democratic billboard. It is a re-manifestation of the public forum—a grassroots broadcast in a city where so many subordinated citizens strive to be heard. It is a simple conduit for communication at the scale of the landscape.
