To be creolized means a language created through mishearing or mistranslation. In this collaboration Miyuki Kasahara & Calum F. Kerr look at the fractured communication (oral and visual) between people who speak completely different languages. Miyuki has collected over 150 images and/or text from people across the world, from USA; Canada; Japan; China; Tibet; India; and Europe (inc. UK) all from those who use non-European Languages. The languages include Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese); Hindi; Japanese; Korean; New Zealand Maori; Persian, Taiwanese & Tibetan. This is similar to the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) projects, such as NASA's Voyager 1 & 2 Spacecraft that carries disks with a message to Aliens". The contributors were asked to communicate their own "message in a bottle" to whoever might view it in the exhibition.
