Language for Smart People

Animation/video, DV, 3:29 min, cooperation with Minhye Chu, 2013

For this karaoke video collage we used the lyrics of the song „99 Luftballons“ by Nena and translated it 99 times between German and English using the Google translator. The result is further deconstructed and merged into a text monster and combined with graphical elements and signs. Nena's song originally is about misunderstanding in communication that causes a war.
