Transmissions from the System pulls my voicemail messages and their text transcription down from my server to the micro-controller. The LCD screen shows the voicemail transcript, while the voice envelope (aural element) is mapped to the light bulb’s light level. The light and the text are message artifacts. The light is a transcription of the voice created through electronics. Yet viewers are left with an absence of audio. The text transcription is an artifact of the message, created from complex software and analysis. Neither can fully recreate the original nor be fully accurate. Something is lost in the transmission. The viewer is left with these translation artifacts and the gapping absence of the real thing.
