The touch-sensitive interface of the installation consists of letters made of copper-coated circuit board which form the sentence, "Technology is not neutral". The material used is a basic component of common electronic devices. The installation refers to the technological production processes by bringing this normally invisible material to the forefront. When users touch the words composing the sentence, sound recordings of discourses about science and media will be activated, triggering a polyphonic cascade of voices, fragments of statements and controversial points of view on technology. In this way, the users can find their own path in “listening” to the sentence.
