Roughly 90% of current voice response systems and networks are utilizing a woman’s voice. This theme explores a woman’s voice and her role within an artificial reality. Robot voices, such as Siri tend to be women because they remind us of being in the womb. A woman’s voice is soothing and calming and delineates a certain type of subserviency. As depicted through science fiction and film/media female robots don’t start wars or take over ships, they perpetuate a male fantasy. In this piece, I explore the male gaze through this psychological love affair integrating the female voice with that of a robots and how we intend to navigate that in todays digital age.
