Voice Portraits in the garden (Dagenham Heathway)

VOICE PORTRAITS by Giovanna Iorio

I turn voices into images. I use spectrograms and they represent the voice and its unique digital print. I then reimagine the spectrogram and turn the spectrograms into artworks. I call them "Voice Portraits" and they are the unique representation of the human voice.

You can see the colours of each voice and listen with your eyes. I exhibited the Voice Portraits in UK and Italy. The exhibition includes a geolocated sound installation: you can listen to the voices of poets and immerse into the sound that has generated the image. You can scan the QRCode with your device and walk into Poetry!

Giovanna Iorio is an eclectic artist. She combines photography, sound, poetry and prose in her works. She is the founder of the Poetry Sound Library, an interactive map to listen to poets from present and past on a world map. Her works have been part of exhibitions and events.

Giovanna Iorio's Sound WalksGiovanna Iorio's Sound Walks

I am a sound artist and I live in UK. I am the founder of the Poetry Sound Library, and archive that preserve the voices of poets from past and present. I research ways to link poetry to the landscape. My sound walks are in UK and around the world. "Voice of Trees" is a sound walk to discover the voices of the most important poets from the Poetry Sound Library archive: monumental trees receive a poet's voice and they become part of an inspiring sound installation.
