The Shape of Conversation is an art project done in collaboration between Edward Tse, PhD student at University of Calgary and Holly Simon, an alumni from the Alberta College of Art and Design. This project features simultaneous voice feature recognition from two people. It converts people's voices into a canvas of colour. You'll see in the video that people do pretty crazy things to make different colours appear on the screen.

This project was part of the course Art Science and Technology (2003).
