Language is as weak as strong, and we can (and we should) break it easily to realise how important, powerful and sometimes dangerous it is. Language is made by structures, repetitions and order, so putting out all his functionality (to represent, to define and to communicate) I’m using the elements of the language (signs, symbols, letters, sounds, shapes) as a material to create images and compositions as the same way that we use paint for painting. Throwing questions around how language works, his rules, his power and the way that we learn it, I am taking it like a game and an experimentation using order,  reticles , repetitions, transparencies, etc.
