Motivational Speech Archive on tumblr and Soundcloud
Motivational Speech Archive was started by Beatrice Peter Schuett in January 2016 and consists of mostly fictional motivational speeches that she has extracted from movies and TV shows. They are collected on various social media platforms and can be shared, listened to and used by others. Beatrice wants to know, has the meaning of these speeches shifted after they have been ripped from their place in a narrative, a storyline? Cinema can hold such great power over its viewers, and sometimes its stories seep over into real life. What do these motivational speeches feel like in their abundance, what do they become? Are they suspended? Are they, at their core, a positive influence or do they become oppressive in their simplicity?
