#01 My Eyes Are My Voice

“My Eyes Are My Voice”, says the protagonist in CABBAGE, not only summarizing his specific way of communicating, but also defining the convoluted thread of this short film program: We observe a woman video-monitoring herself, see a tribute to Taiwanese karaoke culture in which text becomes voice, listen to an entertaining archive of old answering machine messages that encourage us to perform our own images, and finally encounter the words that give the program its name and that were created by the protagonist on the monitor.
