the hidden life of the voyeur

‘pour this pestilence into Othello’s ear.’

deception is audible but the truth is silent. secrets tumble into earshot, anxieties gather around the protection and invasion of privacy. cumulative punishments lurk, both for characters within plays and for unknown audiences as they hear what should not be heard, fail to hear what they need to hear, hear what they wish to never hear, yet cannot help but fail to resist hearing. for seeing is seen but hearing is never heard.
