Please don’t all talk at once, I don’t understand.

Inspired by her experience living in Chile, Hester draws upon moments of frustration, isolation and feelings of estrangement encountered through experiences of the language barrier. The bubble represents disconnection and separation; hot air and captured breaths symbolize the energy of attempted communications. The intangible sounds recreate the ambience of a crowded room and the isolation that is felt if the noises are unintelligible. The idea that you will only ever be a shell of your former self when attempting another language is represented by the changing and shedding of clothes.
