The undershoot is, in linguistics, a phenomenon of failure of the articulatory target. In other words, when we say something that doesn't come out, because we get confused, because we have a deformity, or because the acoustic conditions are not right, we call it an undershoot.

The Undershoot series focuses on famous or anonymous personalities: Chelsea Manning, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Youtubers. Caught in situations of language, these subjects are staged to expose the inseparable nature of bodies with their technical devices of enunciation, from online chat to language.

Each in their own way, they expose their attempt to "realize" their virtual identity.

1. Undershoot, sensitive data: Chelsea
2. Undershoot, sensitive data: Cristiano
3. Undershoot: we whistle and we blow
