The seeds of thought that can be planted in the mind and the assemblage of materiality that encompasses the digital praxis.

Language has to do with the way ants communicate with each other via chemicals. When an ant dies, the other ants were responding. Its body releases a chemical, called oleic acid.

Oleic acid translates to dumpster material/work\productivity for ants, and the other ants were responding to its call. this is language.  



Lingua D'Franca

Language is not just a means of communication but also a powerful symbol of identity in society at levels of the individual and collective. It acts as the beginning point for looking into the past and understanding it in a current context. Language acts as a field of investigation that help unravel the complex understanding underpinned in socio-political contexts.The linguistic landscape are links to understanding war, conflict, displacement and diasporization. Woven into this are issues of trauma and globalisation. Using language as a means of uncovering the major narratives of identity and conflict without negating the interpretations and positionally of Lingua De Franca within the framework of the medu publication.

Writing on the wall (V3, No 2).Lingua de Franca uses this collective name in a satirical remark to English while using it as a major tool to reinvent the translative process.By inserting an interpretive view into the Medu publication, we are both questioning, critiquing and re-understanding the importance of making knowledge and communicating it. The endeavour is toward a richer generative tool in helping bridge gaps between various differences. The collective consists of individuals from distinct ethnicities and cultures with a further variation on language users. As artists we employ a visual strategy in relation to the available translations within our individual frames of reference.
