Universal Access


Universal Access is an embedded function of personal computing, providing unique resources to individuals with disabilities. Voice-over utilities, visual zoom, and display options are among the elements that can be customized. Rashaad Newsome + Kenya (Robinson) make performance work by manipulating these system preference functions to create novel audio patterns. Within these performances search engines results become the text for a new kind of interactive improvisational dialogue, one that references instant messaging, rap free-styling and email correspondence.
