A spoken word is a gesture

Orenius Marika

Three-channel projected installation exploring the relationship between gestures and speech. The movements and texts are combined arbitrarily and the texts become the titles for the individual videos: 'Sometimes I Am Asked How I Was Hurt', 'I Don’t Know So Much About This' and 'I Think We Are Brought Up Differently'.
