According to the principle of 'Chinese Whispers', we initiated a game with language. A text makes three journeys through different languages and is finally translated back into German.
What happened to the words throughout the journey, how is a text transformed?
Each player added their own imprint to the words and consequently changed their original meaning.
There is no 'wrong' translation.
The course of the text permits a closer look at the possibility of multiple interpretation- and gives us a chance to consciously examinate what it feels like to not-comprehend.
The focus is directed towards the heterogenity of a regional population.
'Stille Post' is an art project for the public domain; it makes its appearance both visually and acoustically. It is presented in the form of an image/sound object, which is on exhibition throughout different cities of the Mostviertel with a duration of 2-4 weeks each.
It is about listening, about the silent tones and everything that happens in between the lines.
