Artwork text

Whatever you say, you will get an answer. A film is projected onto a plastic screen from behind, in the film / on the screen is a microphone in the foreground and a cheering crowd in the background, shouting and showing great enthusiasm. The user stands in front of the screen and speaks into the imaginary microphone. The film can be used: before important conferences, rendezvous, receptions, examinations, etc. Using the film will reinforce your self-confidence: no matter what you say, you are sure to be greeted with enthusiasm. Whatever your complaint, comfort is at hand. (VALIE EXPORT)
