Unboxing: Doublespeak explores the boundaries between storytelling, self-perception, and moving image. This suite of video and film installations by Bailey Scieszka, Mary Helena Clark, Laure Prouvost, and Helina Metaferia engages the human voice as both material and technology—bending conventions of speech as a narrative device and as an instrument of individual empowerment. With curiosity and suspicion, the works in this exhibition are studies in the unnatural ventriloquy of historical record. Doublespeak is the first installment in Unboxing, a series of exhibitions, screenings, and performances dedicated to emerging ideas at the crossroads of technology, media, and contemporary art.

Unboxing: Doublespeak is organized by Pat Elifritz, Curator of New Media and Technology at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Lisson Gallery. Exhibitions and public programs at MOCAD are supported by the A. Alfred Taubman Foundation.
