The Secret Language of Trees – Asylum Chapel
Materials: Bark, foam, speakers, MP3s
“The secret Language of Trees” reflects on the limits of language as a mean of communication between humans and the botanical world and questions the need of people to seek a relatable form of expression in plants instead of attuning to their own means of communication. The sound, coming from the sculptural elements, exposes a constructed processes of translation whose outcome is a non-sense mixture of noises, as to highlight the forced nature of this process.
This version of “The Language of Trees” was re-designed and adapted for the group show “Origin” at Asylum Chapel in London, UK.
