to Love' was created especially for the Moscow Contemporary Arts Centre "M'ARS"
and the festival "Art Digital 2005: Digitalised Love".
uses series of drawings by Gail Pearce taken from the past 20 years, and reflects
some of the crises of love as well as a pleasure in drawing the body.
to Love' combines old and new technologies. Drawn images on paper are given
a new reading with a Lonely Hearts soundtrack from Russian newspaper adverts.
These have been digitised to enable the computer to 'read' them. The Russian
soundtrack has been written phonetically to force the American computer voices
to speak Russian. They have some difficulty with this.
