A Language of Things (last edited: 04/09/2016)

About this exposition

What happens to language when we stop writing with letters, words, and other signs on paper and instead use three-dimensional objects? And if we go one step further and, rather than speaking with sounds, show one another objects in order to express ourselves? The "Language of Things" explores the possibilities of notation, communication, and poetry with a set of 100 shapes. Moving between translation and imagination, it extends its vocabulary as it proceeds. The project began in August 2015 and makes use of Michael Schwab's 100 proto-objects: https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/186304/186305 Documentation of Michael Schwab's exhibition (where the LOT were held back by Belgian customs inspection): https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/186304/219199</span>
