The glottis, the vocal cords, are symbols of the voice
they divide two phenomena
the voice inside, the breath
and the voice outside
the phenomenon of vocalization
of speech formation. The echo of the hidden vocal cords
speaks throught the visible lips of the mouth. Turbulences of breath
formulate the expulsion of air
that opens the glottis
tears it apart
bursts through it Turbulences that cut into the vocal cords
that score the banks of the vocal orifice 2007 © VALIE EXPORT
