Speech Bubble – Adam Leech

The main concerns of Adam Leech’s work are the semantics of voice versus speech and the political engineering of public space and community. Speech Bubble began as an investigation into the bankruptcy of the Belgian high-tech speech recognition company, Lernout & Hauspie. Like other multinational corporations, Lernout & Hauspie was a visionary company where money, techno-utopias and the cult of the entrepreneurial personality helped to create the now ubiquitous “market bubble”.
