A sophomore pursuing a degree in film and video at the University of the Arts, Natashia “The Voice of the Lost,” was taking experimental video samples in the wooded spaces of Cobbs Creek Park when she noticed an anomaly that kept showing up on the soundtrack. Using the software on her laptop to isolate and amplify the odd noise, she found it was the sound of a man weeping. Subsequent recordings at the same site yielded the same anomaly, even though there was no one present making the sound. Since then, Natashia has collected several dozen examples of what she calls the “invisible voices.” In a few instances, she seemed to put an anxious voice to rest by passing its message on to the intended recipient.
Natashia’s increasing obsession with these phenomena, and her subsequent involvement in Network Zero, has not come without cost. Inattentiveness to her studies has caused her to lose most of her financial aid package, so she’s had to reduce her course load and take on a string of low-wage jobs. Returning to more conventional projects is not something she’s considering, though. Especially since she can still hear the sound of the Weeping Man every night. She believes that until she finds out what he wants, she always will.
