Role in the Group:
Background Research: I'm in charge of the background focus on the language cultures.
Waterfall Shooting: climb to the shooting spot and operate the camera together with groupmate.
Calligraphy writing: rewrite each character based on the research we together did in Vietnam.
Word falling animation: Create the animation in AE.
Installation Setting up: Hanging the scrolls and create final videos.
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.
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.
