The beginning point was to create a representation of the impossibilities of communication processes with a hope that they would become experienced processes, not representations.
But the work revealed, more than impossibilities, the possibilities of communication in a represented impossibility structure. Then there was too much “talk”, too much noise...
It was missing silences, pauses, breath, We started representing silence, forcing its existence, at the moment we are looking for silence on its essence in relation (communication) without representation. But i'm not sure if it will succeed...
