Creating New Language:
The collection of experiences has been a one to one interaction that takes about 10 minutes per person. A short description about the project is placed around the area of the installation allowing individuals to think over the question before they sit down. Once participants share their experience I rephrase it so that they can confirm that I understand what they mean then I put that description into text on the tablet. Next, I use a sketch program on the tablet to create a rough inscription which represents their experience in pictorial form. The sketches are intended to be refined both conceptually and aesthetically at a l later date, some of which will be printed and some inscribed into marble tablets.
