Spanglish (2011)

Comprised of drawing, collage, pho­tography and video, Spanglish is based on my understanding and misunderstanding of the Spanish language based on reading a dic­tionary. The attempt to learn a language through a list of definitions presents many limitations – however it is within the narrow confines of these limitations and maybe because of them that new understanding is created. Beyond a hybrid of the English and Spanish languages, Spanglish is a visual language made up of words, images, signs and symbols.
