Cloud Talk: Sophocles Fragment #137

On October 9th, 2015 Rebecca Ormiston, Ryan Tacata and myself created an experimental piece for Artist Weather TV that incorporated a text fragment from one of Sophocles’ lost tragedies: Sophocles Fragment #137. Informally, the piece is called Cloud Talk. This work is part of a larger project called IOTA that brings to life the remaining textual fragments of the lost plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides.
