The VOICE GEMS project is a vibrant, unprecedented meditation highlighting the most remarkable, influential, and critically endangered voices on earth to generate digital gemstones and physical sculptures. The works exist as NFT's, print, 3-D print, digital video, large scale projection and cast sculpture.

The project aims to become the worlds leading curated vocal archive, capturing vocal moments and expressions to generate precious digital objects. 

The colors and structure of the  gemstones are generated in real-time from  gifted voice data and recordings. A one-of-a-kind voice piece capturing the liminal space between human connection and the vast anonymity of the internet.

Reeps100 (Harry Yeff) and Trung Bao are two of the world's leading vocal experimentalists living today, both utilizing an almost inhuman vocal range. As artists they have collected hundreds of vocal techniques from around the world, with the aim of pushing the human voice to its unknown limits. 

In 2019 Reeps100 (Harry Yeff) created the first digital sculpture generated from the voices of two lovers. The work was used as a marriage proposal gift, replacing the traditional diamond gemstone and offering a viable alternative to an industry historically associated with environmental depletion and human conflict. 

Yeff’s lifelong collaborations with the world's leading voice artists and academics have shown him that voice is mankind’s most precious tool and one of nature's greatest achievements: it is the purest form of self-expression, predating even language. His multidisciplinary work encompassing AI, VR, and kineticism alongside brilliant technologists, engineers, technicians, and academics to actualize the artistic representation of voice has culminated in the VOICE GEMS series: a visually stunning way to inspire dialogues about value and humanity using new media.

All gems created for the archive are logged and numbered. 

 "Traditions like the engagement ring are open to innovation. No system is perfect, but If we continue to mine the earth's physical resources, I would like to simply introduce innovative and provocative alternatives using technology" - Harry Yeff
