Marilyn (2012), sees the world through the American actress Marilyn Monroe’s eyes as she sits at a desk and writes a letter in a suite in New York’s Waldorf Astoria where she lived in the 1950s. Parreno created robots to mimic Monroe’s voice and handwriting for the film.
via Sleek Magazine:
Marilyn used three mechanical techniques to construct a disparate portrait of Marilyn Monroe, who is never actually depicted. The room occupied by Monroe in the Waldorf-Astoria was reconstructed; we enter a pink and beige mid-century hotel suite during an afternoon rain. Marilyn’s voice was mimicked by a computer and programmed to spout script-like descriptions of the furniture, magazines, and other objects in the room. And finally, throughout the film, we witness close-ups of text being written in notebooks, her penmanship once again rendered by a mechanical contraption – the ghost in the machine.
