These images investigate and question the ideas of definition, meaning, translation and loss of meaning through translation; to 'unmask' the transient and fluid nature of language. We understand a word by etymological definition, not through the living thoughts around that word, at that time. By examining the seemingly instinctual process of interpolating words, symbols and images we can begin to question the assumptions made in our culture and how they construct 'truths' we take for granted. These assumptions affect our interpretation of the world around us which shapes our actions and behaviour in life. Using the philosophy of Wittgenstein, these images seek to deconstruct the origins of our contemporary definitions of identities, using their representations in both image and language.
