ScreamNow: Inside/Out



Video documenting my art practice leading to the project ScreamNow, an interactive public art project allowing the visitor to experience the transformative act of screaming and the possibility to see a visualization of their scream.


Inspired by the French Medieval “crieur public”, ScreamNow is the first public screaming booth of an upcoming series. The artwork takes a fundamental yet repressed human expression to generate visuals seen inside and outside of the booth.

ScreamNow : Inside/Out evolved to reflect our current social distancing and deeply transformative times. The new set up expands in space with a studio, adding the concept of Inside/Out to the project’s original purpose of offering a sanctuary for people to scream their heart out.

The screams from inside each of us are released outside in nature, shielded by the open booth structure. Recorded via a microphone in the booth, the screams are processed inside of the studio. Flower petals picked from the outside world are covering the walls of the studio where the recorded screams are transformed into visuals and projected back outside onto the booth.

The screamer instantly sees the visuals empowering her voice.
