The installation addresses the structures of communication through the abstracting of relationships between words, objects and meanings. It extends upon the my interest in the underlying processes involved in the communication of meaning between an artwork and an audience. Research for this work was carried out whilst studying at the HFBK in 2009 as a guest student on a DAAD artist scholarship from Australia.

Throughout 2008 and 2009 I participated in residency projects in Berlin, Paris and Hamburg during which time I began experimenting with language translation, utilising the lexical gaps and misunderstandings between languages as departure points for creativity. In my earlier work »Lemurs, roswell, wheat, pyramids, mosquitoes, yellow skin, humans that lay eggs, bestiality, nazi aryanism« (2009) I incorporated speech recognition software and automated translation websites as a way to generate poetic texts and narratives that were then edited into a corresponding visual structure.

In »Windows impersonating other windows« the trope of the artist interview undergoes a similar process of distorted translation. The interviews, shot on location in the my Paris studio at the Cité des Arts in 2009, form a triptych with the iconic Hamburg planetarium that once functioned as a water tower for the city. Digitally manipulated photographs depicting the 20th century philosopher Martin Heidegger in his cabin retreat in the Black Forest mountains of southern Germany are contrasted with a spa filled with almonds, wooden speech bubbles and an assortment of hanging towels. These sculptural aspects of the installation reveal incongruous relationships between form and concept; creating a space for deeper consideration of how we extract meaning from our physical environment, consideration of how we extract meaning from our physical environment.
