Felicity Townsend's Revelare: Declaration forms part of a larger investigation into transformations and screening behaviours both observed and enacted through thermochromic liquid crystals and human emotional responses. 'To screen' can mean 'to display' or 'to obscure.' Revelare: Declaration explores display rituals and the physical body as a conductor of language. In the work, liquid crystals painted on the throat mimic the iridescent plumage of male birds of paradise, changing and transitioning during speech. By muting sound, Townsend prevents the comprehension of the language and brings the focus back onto the physical action of speech.
