About

Strata is a body of twelve video that reveals the inconsistencies of language through translation.

In each video, the artist took from an analogue English dictionary the definition an adjective related to the notion of absoluteness and translated it backward and forward, from English into the nine other most used languages on the web using Google translate. By progressively layering the results obtained at every step of the process, she creates a visual cacophony that illustrates the loss of meaning in video format.
