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, creating physical representations of information, through interaction and playfulness. My passion lies with people and my talent in connecting dots through exploration and storytelling.
