viewers were seated in a dark room and looking at a figure drawn on transparent paper. the figure didn’t have a face, but it’s expressions changed throughout the reading because they were mapped onto it with a video projector. i read her speech from another room and used a microphone, it wasn’t possible to see me at all.
the drawing was the one speaking.
