“Mixing up several languages to talk to you by only typing , our entities are enclosed through transformers. Grimacing without sounds a friskiness bounced, can a light headedness be evacuated from the responsibility of words?”  Short Notes - Hiromi Nakajima. 

Leaving Language In A Japanese Limousine is a Waugh Office Production for the collateral programme of The Folkestone Triennial.

The coded systems of language are an infectious grammè, that allows us to articulate thoughts while simultaneously becoming them. How then are national aesthetics translated in the era of global technological platforms? Artworks are material engines of the desire to transform words via an intensity of other signs.
