Kristin Oppenheim was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1959, and lives and works in New York. Her audiovisual installations use her own melancholy, mysterious voice to create specific ambient moods. Her work fits within the minimalist movement, and she is one of the visual artists who have used the human voice as material for experimentation. The historical precedents of the visual arts taking an interest in the human voice go back to Dadaist phonetic poetry and the poésie sonore of the years following the Second World War.
