ECHO ELIZA ALEXA by Stefani Glauber

The Video ECHO ELIZA ALEXA tells the stories of three different female figures in different social and cultural contexts. Echo is a nymph, a figure from mythology whose own speech was taken due to a punishment. She consequently can only speak with the last words said to her. ELIZA, written in 1966 is a computer program to enable human-computer communication based on natural speech. Alexa is a digital assistant from the company Amazon which can only be voice controlled. All three figures are perceived as disembodied, have female names and simulate communication through a form of repetition.
