Play of Language

Play of Language

2017, steel, variable dimensions, Commission for the Sea Art Festival 2017

Language is reduced to mere noise when it’s mixed up, but mixture of well-tuned noises creates a perfect body of symphony with beautiful harmony. Although all beings have their own language, not everyone is always successful in arriving at perfect communication through such languages. The group DMT Turtle Stone contemplates on the meaning and method of communication through the process of collaboration, followed by their attempts to integrate different languages into one common language. Their proposed solution was to focus on the element of sound in spoken language, and then express it as something musical. Play of Language presents aural sensation to the viewer at the center of the structure in which each sound is installed in each frame. Also, the combination of frames that display a various array of colors and lights is visually stimulating and enhances visual and experiential pleasure.
