HERE'S WHAT I'M THINKING:
Linguistic expression is generally overlooked and dismissed as a given. My works serve to question the role of language as a mere tool of communication and aim to emphasize the fact that languages are whole ways of knowing in and of themselves, that must be taken into consideration in a rapidly globalizing world. Similarly, I hope to underline the growing crisis of language death across the planet, which results in the average disappearance of two languages a day. Through my works, I seek also to stretch the limits of what language can be, as well stretch the perception of what language is. Going beyond the familiar spoken and written forms, I hope to push the viewer to see how versatile linguistic expression can be and the limitations and boundaries of their own perspective. In this way, I challenge the consumer of my work to reject passive acceptance of Western mass media culture and to create their own visual, sonorant, and linguistic reality.
