Sounder and Relay is a further exploration of ideas from Dots and Dashes, presented in an installation format. Two video projections show computer-generated figures in Victorian interiors. As the two tap messages on their telegraphs, the signals are transmitted through physical antique telegraph equipment. The text is composed of excerpts from dialogue between N. and C. in the book Wired Love: A Romance in Dots and Dashes.
