WORDFALL, STONETALE

November 4, 2015

 

Artist Statement

Language shapes history and history shapes language — much like water falling over stone. On the expedition, we encountered beautiful patterns in the rock that were formed by a slow and gradual interaction. The effect was much like how language also leaves its trail through a culture – word by word, water drop by water drop. Language is to history what water is to the stones. Our interest in historical languages led us to create a ‘word fall’ that visually shows how centuries of communication act as a type of memory.

 

 

   Artwork Description

     A vertical projection merges a flow of      

     collected videos of falling water and

     patterned stone with Vietnamese

     calligraphy. This forms a landscape that    

     uses waterfalls as a metaphor for the

     molding force of language.
