In this series of work I have explored miscommunication and the feeling of uncertainty between languages – the Incompatibility of linguistic and cultural codes and the phenomenon of misunderstanding. This work has developed around my own personal experience, my experience of living aboard and of being a foreigner: Especially the peculiarities of speaking a different language.
I referred to the relationship between identity and language. Language forms the structure within which we live and to some extent governs how we form our identities. In learning a new language we fight to accommodate the two structures while retaining our sense of self.
