Andrea Flaminì - Macbeth Morse (To the last syllable of recorded time) - 7:55 - 2005
A passage from Shakespeare‘s Macbeth is translated to Morse code. The work is part of an ongoing series investigating private spaces and the smallest units of language.
” With elegant sophistication and underlying drama, Andrea Flamini taps into the world of short-wave radio transmission with a Morse code translation of a passage from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The work is a hybrid, addressing classical technology and prose jettisoned into a suggestive contemporary context of spatial communication, condensed language, distress and romance.” [McGuire]
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the fast syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
