AboutSalomé Voegelin, David Burrows and Mark Jackson discuss the exhibition 'Dead Fingers Talk: The Tape Experiments of William S. Burroughs' in relation to contemporary practice.
Voegelin is an artist and writer concerned with the practice and philosophy of sound. She is the author of Listening to Noise and Silence: Towards a Philosophy of Sound Art published by Continuum Press in May 2010. Her sonic pieces use a documentary approach, to glean from the interviewee a truth beyond the visual. She is a senior lecturer and a course leader of the MA Sound Arts at the London College of Communication.
David Burrows is a British contemporary artist and writer. His work consists of drawings and paint-spattered, debris-littered, haphazard installations. Burrows is, with Simon O'Sullivan, one half of Plastique Fantastique and a former member of the art collective BANK.
Mark Jackson is the curator of Dead Fingers Talk and project co-ordinator at IMT.
