Sounds have a funny way of being untranslatable. This project aims to highlight the differences in onomatopoeias across different languages.
Thought is free to wonder unbounded. In verbal expression it becomes cemented. In English, we speak about language and speech largely through the metaphor of the container. We put thoughts INTO words and we get information OUT OF books. This project attempts to show that thought does not equal language - a complex symbiotic relationship exists between the two.
We talk about crime through multiple metaphors. Crime can spread through communities or prey on neighborhoods. Exposure to a single metaphorical lens has been shown to possibly influence an individual's opinion of and solution to crime. Through a visceral and grabbing installation, the different approaches to talking about crime will be illuminated and contrasted.
A composite of the world's top writing systems, the future alphabet project is a deep dive into the nature of writings systems and exploration of the far future of written communication.
