Our project is included in the Provoke! Digital Sound Studies web collection via Duke University. It’s a great honor to be a part of an innovative publication of works by sound thinkers/tinkerers.
In addition to what’s available on this site, the Provoke! collection showcases notes that reflect on the Paperphone design process. “Throughout our design process, we asked the following questions: How does sound rematierialize text? How does sound recontextualize the meaning of text? How do the sonic qualities of speech affect the meaning of text? We used these questions to guide our design decisions; and ensured that our design will eventually enable scholar users to explore these questions in their own research.” Read more here.
More about the Provoke! web collection:
The Provoke! web collection creates a home for creative-critical projects by makers, documentary artists, and sound scholars whose work presses at the boundaries of scholarship. Envisioned as “provocations” to existing forms of publication, these projects relate to one another through their deep engagement with sonic materials and innovative formal presentation. Rather than drawing from a particular historical period, culture, methodology, or set of aesthetic objects, Provoke! collects a series of processual explorations connected through an ethos of play, experimentation, and social interaction. Because of their sonically inspired, collaborative nature, many of these projects fall outside the purview of traditional academic publishing, yet each one offers a critical contribution to the ongoing dialogue about the future of sound studies and digital humanities.
