Artist Statement:


CrossTalk playfully mediates language and communication for two or more simultaneous users and their audience. Its two interlaced, over-sized keyboards, one made of mahogany keys, and one of maple, force users to negotiate shared space. As they type, the keys whisper words that appear to cascade onto a shared screen.
