Sound installation

The concept of this work is based on language and forms of communication. Martiroyan´s contribution to FAR OFF will be a site-specific  installation where language is used as a material and mixes with the spoken word of the present time.

For me it is significant, how bygone forms of expression during a live conversation can be transformed in time and be recreated newly. Each person is a „language collage“ onto which the recorded, historical material will be added.


Image: 1500 words from the Oxford dictionary. For me it is a symbol of the pure module of linguistic material, wherein all forms of texts and conversations already exist.
