“Everything we understand about reality is understood solely through the context of language.”
Multiple sources

“Speak Easy...” is a series of works that investigate language as a structure of power. The casted objects of bodily and mechanical parts oscillate between bouncing, vibrating, balancing, stretching and pulling, thus reflecting a system of instability, powerful invisible forces, fragility and tension. 


As part of the work, we collaborated with opera singer Mohsen Masoumi to create a ‘singing sculpture’. He performed operatic interpretations of the nonsensical Lorem Ipsum text in response to the sculpture which acts a vessel to his voice.


“And our tongues have become
dry the wilderness has
dried out our tongues and
we have forgotten speech.”
