Mirror Tongue "Peggy Gordan"
Concerned with how language and learning physically alters the brain and thus perception, and having worked as a language teacher, musician, and experiencing head trauma and recovery. This project involves memorizing a reversed recording of the 19th century folk song 'Peggy Gordon', a song of personal familial significance. Adapted from performance, the recorded singing the of the piece, both forward and backwards, is then demonstrated in reverse. Reverse-speech itself being of no seminal academic value other than demonstrating the brain's remarkable ability to adapt and attribute new symbols and systems to create meaning.
