VeeMee is an interactive mirror by Magdalena Sojka, which translates the utterances of the audience into sounds and images and projects these back. VeeMee is an audiovisual puzzle the recipient engages in through a concentrated internal dialogue. In the process, the work examines the multimodal interpretation of text. This follows strict rules which are similar to our use of language. The underlying thought is that sense only emerges based on a pool of building blocks which are always the same, much like letters in language. For example, “regal” and “large” consist of the same letters, but it is in their composition that the words take on their respective meanings.
The project was completed as a final project in the upper-level Visual Music 2 module.
