Beyond Language

11 hours of communication

During this experiment I talked with 11 people for 11 hours in 11 different languages. I talked Dutch while the participants spoke Turkisch, Mandarin, Spanish, French, Farsi, Danish, Tagalog, Italian, Mexican, Swedish and Finnish. And we could understand each other.

step 1: getting to know each other

step 2: building a language

step 3: understanding!

As a designer I like to interrogate how we relate to the world surrounding us. My work is all about challenging conventional ideas and beliefs, making the invisible visible by creating playful objects as representations of information.
