The video shows the artist herself speaking, in a talking head format, but the voice that comes out is not just one but six female voices, all with different accents, attempting to speak the same text in sync.
Sometimes they sync up really well but other times they go completely out of sync and stumble over some words, which were kept without editing or corrections. In fact, the artist shot the video of the piece (i.e. the artist speaking) at the very end, so the artist was the one who had to adjust her speech based on the spoken performance by the participants in order to sync up. The piece was inspired by the question that the artist had: "What would it sound like if a group of people with different accents spoke at the same time?" To be shown as a video installation with headphones.
