‘Silent Conversations’ is an investigation of communication through a purely visual language. The installation consists of a video projection onto a large screen. The projection appears as a misty window with anonymous people standing in the background. Each person draws a mark or a sign on the screen. The nature of the marks is naive – basic imagery which reveals our common thoughts and desires.
